Girl Power


So I just read this article, it talks about the above shirt and how many (including me) are outraged with it's message.  As a gender, we have worked so hard to prove ourselves as equals with men, we are just as smart, just as industrious, just as strong, just as capable, if not more so, than men.  Yet still, we have so far to go.  The fact that messages such as "I'm too pretty to do homework so my brother has to do it for me," are slandering t-shirts targeted at young impressionable girls tells us that we have to work harder.  As it says in the article, it could be detrimental to young girls development for them to see shirts like these on their classmates.  Though they may just think it's "cute & sassy," it's actually transmitting a message to young girls, and boys for that matter.  This just isn't okay, as women, we need to make sure that young girls see, hear, and elicit only empowering messages.  

What do you guys think?
