New Toy Company Teaches Girls They Can Do More With Their Lives Than Be Pretty
The whole, pretty-little-girl motif is getting old, no?
According to UpWorthy, fewer than 3 in 10 graduates in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are women. This isn't because women are born liking kitchens and barbies and getting married; it's because they grow up surrounded by pink toy aisles and a constant stream of media telling them they're supposed to.
WELL, Goldieblox is a kick-ass new company that wants nothing more than to encourage young girls to like whatever they want whether it's monster trucks or kitchenettes. Sometimes, girl power is exactly the same as boy power, and it should be encouraged and supported as such.
