The practice of separating books by gender is part of this subtle communication to our girls...that their stories don't matter as much as boys' stories do...and that boys should have no interest in learning about girls. ~ Melissa de la Cruz Feminist Pins, Feminist Quotes, Gender Disparity, Gender Politics, Radical Feminism, Girl Story, Sex Ed

Dear Lego company:  My name is Charlotte. I am 7 years old and I love legos but I don’t like that there are more Lego boy people and barely any Lego girls.  Today I went to a store and saw legos in two sections the girls pink and the boys blue. All the girls did was sit at home, go to the beach, and shop, and they had no jobs but the boys went on adventures, worked, saved people...
