Teen Think Tank: Women's History Month

Hi Everyone!

To celebrate Women's History, we've been learning about and being inspired by incredible women in teen programs throughout the month of March. Carry on honoring the creativity, bravery, compassion, and intelligence of women around the world all year long! Check out some of the ideas below to get started.

Stay safe and have a great week!

#READ: The Cure For Dreaming by Cat Winters

The Cure For Dreaming Book Cover

In Portland, Oregon, in 1900, seventeen-year-old Olivia Mead, a suffragist, is hypnotized by the intriguing young Henri Reverie, who's paid by her father to make her more docile and womanly but who, instead, gives her the ability to see people's true natures, while she secretly continues fighting for women's rights.


#LISTEN: Podcast – Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls

Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls Podcast

A fairy tale podcast for kids about extraordinary women from all over the world. Based on the bestselling series Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, each episode explores the lives of women from the books, encouraging young listeners to ask questions and explore their interests.

#EXPLORE: Be inspired by "Guardians of the Planet: 16 Women Environmentalists You Should Know" on amightygirl.com blog, then use recycled materials to make this cute Grass Head project from homemade-gifts-made-easy.com!

Grass Head Project

Celebrate sixteen incredible women who are working to protect the environment and all of the creatures which share our planet. From groundbreaking primatologists to deep-sea explorers to determined activists, each of them has changed the way that we see the world — and our role in protecting it. Equally importantly, these women have shown all of us that we have an effect on the health of our plant: from the smallest decisions of our day-to-day lives to international policy — each of us can make a difference.
