Teen Feminists on Nick News! →
So this is cool, right? Nick News taped a Women’s History Month special featuring a panel of teens from across the country—girls and boys, feminists and non-feminists—to sit down and have a chatty with Gloria Steinem about whether or not we still need feminism. We are ultra excited about this special, and not just because 3 SPARKteam members are on it! It airs Monday April 1st at 8pm, and we’re hosting a twitter livechat to coincide with the east coast broadcast. Click thru for deets—we hope you can join us!
"Where does a child saying, “it’s not fair, you’re not the boss of me!” come from? We need to preserve that— especially in girls. Culture tells girls to become female impersonators…Now, the sexualization of girls has started so young that it’s taking away that period of freedom that used to go until 9 or 10. We are in danger of losing that core that said, “It’s not fair."
