“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.”
― Maya Angelou
You know what young women need? They need a place to be clever. A place to laugh. A place to stand up for what they believe in. A place where they can feel good about being themselves.
Where nobody judges anyone else for their personal choices. Where it’s completely cool to like politics, or programming, or sloth videos on the internet, or all of those things at once.
There’s so much pressure on young women to look, think and act in a certain way. So many different voices in the media telling them to ‘grow up’ and to ‘think twice’ and to ‘pipe down – your opinions don’t matter.’
At Birdee we believe that every girl’s opinion matters, and if given the opportunity, girls today will change the world.
You are bold, you are brave, you are fucking beautiful.
