About Girls Rise Up

I mentored young girls in foster care while I was at the U of A and was a Youth Minister for five years. I have also worked for two years as a social worker with homeless women which has helped me see things from a feminist perspective. I can't imagine trying to raise a daughter in a society full of reality tv and fifteen minute fame for a "nip slip". I didn't have an older sister, but if I did, there are things I would've wanted her to tell me (I did have a great older brother--thank you to Sam who did his best with "girl talk"). So, for all young girls who want someone out there to be honest with them on all topics, I will try to do my best. I will also bring attention to feminist issues, pop culture, and current news stories that I think could benefit my readers. Thanks for reading!
