Some Sites for Young Feminists

1 Comment

YWCA Hamilton has an mandate to pour into and empower young women. YWCA Hamilton has a wide array of excellent girls’ programming designed to build confidence, self-esteem and skills in young women. The internet can be a scary place for girls-with media saturation about what it means to be pretty or perhaps more importantly how to be “hot”.

Here’s few links to some excellent resources for teens and young women that focus on creating strong, independent and intelligent young women.

Changing what Beauty means one post-it at at time. PS- Caitlin is writing a new book aimed at teens and tweens!

Love this magazine!

GirlSpace– a safe online community for young women with LOADS of important info!

How cool is this? Helping young girls find their speed while encouraging physical activity and confidence!

Young feminists interested in women’s rights and development? Young Feminist Wire is the place for you!

The young feminists in Hamilton are at YWCA Girl’s Programs!

The RebELLES are having their 2nd pan-feminist gathering in Winnipeg in May!

Beyond Nancy Drew– An annotated list of books written for girls in the last 200 years

Brain Cake- this web site promotes math and science by creating an online community where girls can interact with their peers about current science topics, solve science mysteries, and discuss careers with young women scientists and engineers

This list of INCREDIBLE resources for girls is too huge to link…definitely worth checking out the whole list.
