In India and China, baby girls are being murdered every single day by abortion or being murdered (stranglulation, poisoning, drowning) right after they are born. The only reason this is happening is because in these countries it is believed that boys bring their families wealth and honor, while girls bring their families nothing. China is infamous for forcing thousands of women a day to have forced abortions for the sole reason that they are having an illegal pregnancy.

The documentary “It’s A Girl” goes into the lives of those who are effected by the mass gendercide and extreme sexist beliefs. This movie was a major eye opener for myself and I believe it will be the same to anyone else. It’s on Netflix, so please take a moment to watch this amazing film or visit their website www.itsagirlmovie.com. Thank you

I really want to show this documentary to all the people who say that gendercide is a myth

The Ultimate Guide to the Independent Princess
http://www.amightygirl.com/mighty-girl-picks/independent-princess
A truly amazing guide to 80 books that feature princesses who aren’t afraid to think for themselves and do things other than waiting for Prince Charming!

So I was super thrilled by the fact that the Princess and the Goblin showed up on this list, but, at the same time,  it still sort of invalidated itself by not including The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Seriously, people do not seem to realize how important that book is. As a little girl, I cannot overemphasize the effect it had on me that it was Lucy who found Narnia, and Lucy who kept believing in it even when no one believed her. THAT was the moment that I realized I could be the hero of my own story. I didn’t need any feminist revisions of classic fairy tales, I just needed Lucy Pevensie and that Lampost.

R.A. Dickey, a pitcher for the New York Mets, successfully reached the top of Mount Kilimanjaro earlier this month, in part to raise awareness and money to stop sexual slavery in Kamathipura- Mumbai’s largest red light district.
According to the latest government estimates, about 100,000 to 200,000 women and girls are working in brothels in Mumbai.
“As I am the father of two daughters, ages 9 and 8, the thought of my  own being subjected to the atrocities that happen every day in the  brothels and on the streets of Kamathipura is heartbreaking,” R.A.  wrote for the New York Times baseball blog.
Congratulations, Mr. Dickey for your incredible feat and for bringing attention to this cause.
