Ellen Calls Out Sexist Products

Ellen reminds us to question new products and marketing strategies for sexism.  What other products can you think of that embolden sexist sentiments?

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!
