Media for girls!

I want to post about approximately 37 things, but at the moment, this is what I have time for: A Mighty Girl: The world's largest collection of books and movies for smart, confident, and courageous girls.

I've only scratched the surface of the collection, but they list works featuring girls of color, not just white kids. They also have a sub-category of books called "Social Issues", with several hundred books on topics like prejudice and discrimination, war and conflict, and environmental issues. Plus tons of fun fiction. (:

Mothers of daughters, writers, readers, YA enthusiasts: this looks like a great resource and a fun project to get involved with.
