F**kin Bitch Friday: A Mighty Girl

Dawn LOFB BadgeIn August, I found a Facebook page called A Mighty Girl, after a friend shared a link to a story about Mo’Ne Davis, the badass 13-year-old baseball pitcher who “became the first girl to pitch a shutout game in the 68-year history of the Little League World Series”. The post lists a number of her other accomplishments and goes on to offer suggestions of websites with more information. It was a hell of a lot more thorough and informative than most things I see on Facebook, so I clicked “like” and went on my merry way.

I’m glad I did.

A Mighty Girl now shows up in my news feed almost daily with a post about the Mighty Girl of the day. They can be anything from suffragettes to scientists to activists to kids raising money for charity or changing the way corporations view and depict women. I’m now exposed daily to stories about real people who made or are making a difference in the world, and it encourages me to get off my sorry ass and do something, to reach out, treat people better, be the change. The non-Facebook website is a resource for Mighty Girls and their parents. Full disclosure: I don’t have kids and don’t plan on having kids, but this feed is one fantastic source of people to look up to and emulate. If you’re looking for new and different heroes, this is a great place to go.

So does this mean as one of the founders of A Mighty Girl, I’m some sort of honorary bitch? You know, my momma is already super proud that she raised her son to be a feminist — just think of how she’d feel knowing he’s also a bitch!

Great site btw ;) (And thanks for the lovely write up!)
