A Mighty Girl

I found a new website that’s a great resources for books and movies with strong female roles. It’s called A Mighty Girl and it looks awesome.

I also read a related article on gender stereotypes and raising children. The title claims to help you avoid gender stereotypes, which is pretty much impossible since stereotypes are a cultural mindset rather than an individual bias, but it has great points and ideas.

What do you think? Do you try to avoid gender bias with your children, or do expect boys to be boys and girls to be girls? How do your views jive or clash with your friends and family?

Blatant Self-Promotion (for a good cause)

Hi Moms! I just wanted to let you know about a fundraiser I have going on right now… I’m raising money for Joints in Motion / The Arthritis Society, and I’m using Facebook to do it.

I have a collection of auction prizes up for grabs (and I’m still adding to it). People are bidding by leaving a comment underneath the prize they want – the bid you make needs to be higher than the previous bid, or if you’re the first you can bid anything you want. The last / highest bid made by 8 PM on June 10 is the winner, and you can pay by cheque or PayPal. All proceeds support Joints in Motion / The Arthritis Society.

Please let me know if you have any questions! And please feel free to share this with family + friends – it’s open to everyone. You can find the auction here.

Thanks in advance for your support 🙂
