Welcome to The Girl Revolution, (www.thegirlrevolution.com), designed to help parents raise powerful daughters. The Girl Revolution’s sole mission is to revolutionize the way we think about, treat, and raise girls.
One only has to Google the word “girl” to realize that the very word we use to identify young females of the human species, our precious daughters, has tragically become a four-letter word. This tragedy is a result of a consumer culture that says it’s not only okay, but quite profitable, to consume girls.
Every parent and thinking person understands that girls are one of the world’s most precious and most underused resources and that they deserve better than they’re getting from popular media, marketing, and advertising.
Tracee Sioux is the passionate creator of The Girl Revolution and TGR Body, a journalist, photographer, a writer, editor, marketer, public speaker, mother, wife, entrepreneur, seeker, reader, learner and believer.
The Girl Revolution is designed to help parents raise powerful daughters. The Girl Revolution’s sole mission is to revolutionize the way we think about, treat, and raise girls. The website examines political, social, and cultural messages about who girl are and what they’re about. It’s personal. It’s passionate.
In conjunction with The Girl Revolution, she’s an entrepreneur with a skin care line to protect girl’s inherent natural beauty with sunscreen and other products, TGR Body. TGR Body aims to prevent UV Accumulation in children by providing them with natural, organic, craptastic-free products (paraben-free and phthalate-free, ingredients associated with early puberty). Because labels matter, the labels are images of girls doing powerful, active things and include positive, powerful messaging to improve body image.
Two essays Tracee wrote have been published in PunditMom’s Mothers of Intention: How Women & Social Media are Revolutionizing Politics in America.
In 2011, Tracee intends to publish the book, Love Distortion: Love Stories We Tell Our Girls. Two other books are in the editing process, as well.
A journalist for 15 years, Tracee enjoys asking questions and probing for the answers. She most recently has written for Northern Colorado Business Report and Lydia’s Style Magazine. She also enjoys doing corporate writing, copyediting, public relations and marketing.
Because her days of college thrill-seeking and oat-sowing are over, she enjoys public speaking. She does it for the adrenaline rush. She’s a little worried that once she overcomes stage fright, she’ll be inexplicably driven to jump out of a perfectly functional airplane for the thrill.
Tracee likes to think she won the Baby Lottery, with a boy and a girl. Ainsley, her 9-year-old precocious and bright daughter, is her muse for The Girl Revolution and TGR Body. She’s found a way to mother exceptionally and created her own work environment by giving her children a lot of independence and becoming an entrepreneur.
Tracee has been married to a really good man for 10 years. His recent transfer from Texas to Colorado may be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. She loves the lifestyle, the weather, the culture and the people. It’s possible this gypsy (she’s moved something like 16 times) may never leave.
She’s a spiritual seeker and knows for a fact that Law of Attraction works. She wears a bracelet daily, reminding her, “thoughts become things, choose the good ones.” Tracee tricked her brain into believing she “loved working out” until it became true. She adores yoga, kickboxing, strength training and cardio. A lifelong learner, Tracee has her nose in a book several times a day.
