A fifth grader who asks her school therapist if she can help her put together a presentation for her class.
Her reason: She feels like her and her fellow peers are under so much pressure to be sexy and beautiful that they are not enjoying their childhood. “We’re 11 we should not have to worry about putting make up on before we leave the house.”
Bonus: She was not coming from a judgemental place but rather a concern about societies expectations and how they are unrealistic and she made her own powerpoint.
Female Empowerment: It’s alive and thriving.
