Inspire Her Mind

Pretty brilliant advertising

I was going to post about something else tonight, but then I saw this and it couldn’t wait:

Inspire her mind. It’s such a good ad.

Sometimes, this whole bringing-up-girls-biz can seem like a losingĀ battle against the pink, princessy, gender-limiting machine.

Then, something like this ad comes along and reminds me of my principles and why they’re so important.

Tell them they’re pretty, but tell them they’re ‘pretty brilliant’ more often.

And, here’s the perfect opportunity to share again my favourite spoken-word poem – Katie Makkai’s Pretty. So fierce.
