Today I had lunch with a few amazing, dynamic ladies affiliated with the local chapter of Girl’s Inc. to learn more about the organization and possibly join the board. One of the first things the executive director told me about Girl’s Inc: “Our mission is about inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.” There’s a message I can get behind! They had me at hello. I can’t think of a more important time than right now to teach young girls to empower themselves through education and to understand, value, and assert their rights.
Quotes from the girls are displayed throughout the national website. One of my favorites from a very wise 6 year old…
It’s good to be a girl in this world today. I like being a girl because I can speak for myself. I can stand up for myself. Being a girl makes me strong.
I'm a small town lady from the sunshine state with an affinity for bookstores, beauty counters and unfussy style.
I spend my days running my flower shop, and my nights blogging about what I love and what I wear.
(Or watching Netflix and drinking wine.)
