Most of us know Amy Poehler as a brilliant comedian. What many of you may not know about is a web site and Facebook page that she has developed to encourage you women to appreciate their own value in society. The name of this site is:
“Smart Girls is dedicated to helping young people cultivate their authentic selves. Our motto is: Change the World by Being Yourself. What began as an online show for young girls and an excuse to host spontaneous dance parties, has become a place for information, comedy and community. When we use the word “community” we take that very seriously. Therefore, our intention is to be a safe place where those who make up that community may be heard and offered a response. We are finding that Smart Girls is the first community where many young men and women are able to express their own concerns. Through our “Call to Action” campaigns we encourage smart girls to volunteer and to be more curious about the world they live in. Our goal is to provide a healthy alternative to so much that is being marketed to young people on the internet. We emphasize intelligence and imagination over “fitting in.” We celebrate curiosity over gossip. We are a place where people can truly be their weird and wonderful selves.”
I have been following this site for some time and I would encourage anyone who is involved in the lives of young women to take a look at this site and recommended it.
AMY POEHLER YOU ROCK!
