I came across this http://t.co/VVSktEpfis today in my Facebook feed.
It got me to thinking about the casual misogyny in American society and how it plays out in schools. (I also wonder about how that misogyny impacts boys- what it teaches them about their roles in society.) What do you do in your classroom (or in your work, if you're not currently teaching) to help girls hold onto their confidence as they move into adolescence? What do you think about campaigns like this one? Do they help? Are they just good marketing?
