The Girl Revolution Launch Party & Contest Rules

Welcome to The Girl Revolution Launch Party.

Either you’ve been a loyal reader of Empowering Girls: So Sioux Me for the last two years or you’re a newby and will want to spend time exploring the categories.

Either way, I could not be happier that you’re here.

The Girl Revolution‘s only aim is to heal the soul of the world by raising powerful girls. Readers of The Girl Revolution know that girls are one of the most vital resources of the world. We’re going to protect them from media consumption and dissolve every single barrier that exists between girls and gender and economic equality.

How do I know this?

I’ve met YOU. You’re going to make the difference for the girl in your life and girls collectively. You, her mother and father, grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins, school counselors, mentors, teacher, writer, lawyer, accountant, church leader, non-profit organization director, religious conservative and feminist alike – YOU are willing to do whatever it takes to make every barrier that has ever existed for girls vanish.

My designer Cassie Germsheid of Mamas on the Web did an awesome job. Doesn’t it look fantastic? Also special thank yous to Gayla McCord, Chris Garrett, Gwen Bell, and my husband Jeremy Thornton.

I’ll be starting 2009 off with a Fit Girl series exploring the link between the childhood obesity epidemic and early puberty next week. You don’t want to miss it so make sure you can find us again with RSS feeds, email subscriptions or the Webazine.

To celebrate I’ve lined up OVER 25 26 gifts you can win. To win you only have to spread the word about The Girl Revolution.

Oooh! What a great new look Tracee! I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now and in that time I’ve sent the link to all the mothers of girls I know – although empowering girls-who-will-be-women is a job for all of us, including mothers of boys. (I’ve also just signed up to the girl revolution webazine!).

I couldn’t agree more Keda. We have lots of mothers of sons here. Thanks so much for being a loyal reader and spreading the word!

#14 Jeanne on 01.14.09 at 12:45 am


It looks really awesome! I updated my blogroll yesterday to reflect the name change/address change. Cassie does good work, huh?

1) Tweet – check
2) Facebook – was already linked prior – check
3) Updated my blogroll for you yesterday – check
4) Leave a zillion comments here – check
5) I just posted about it here:… – check
6) I like the “Girl Revolution 2″ T-shirt. (Sooo, when are you going to have your hubby make up some stuff for me? This is awesome)!!
7) Hmmm. The webazine. I have been working hard at unsubscribing to ALL feeds and magazines in an effort to get some semblance of control on my inbox. It had gotten up to almost 7,000 unread emails. Got it down to 2,400 or so. Went back up to 3,671 within a week! I can’t subscribe to anything because it will endanger my sanity. So I guess that it a “not check”.

OK, I think I entered every way possible. I just won my 1st blog giveaway the other day. Maybe that was the start of a lucky streak? :) So bring it on! I’m ready for my prizes. :)

Found your site through a link on Pink Stinks. I am the Dad of two wonderful girls. I aim to avoid stereotyping them along narrow and demeaning gender lines as much as possible. They have a world of possibilities ahead of them and it is my duty to offer and present a range and variety of opportunities to them so they can grow and flourish. The support and help of resources like yours will be invaluable. Keep up the good work!
