The 2020 Girl Powered Planner
The 2020 Girl-Powered Planner features 365 days of girls and young women under 25 who have contributed to American history, fun ideas, and year-round inspiration!
“Each time a girl opens a book and finds a womanless history, she learns she is worth less.”
– Myra Sadker
Many have heard my story– I only met a few key players in US history, like Martha Washington and Rosa Parks. I didn’t meet many others until GRADUATE school in history, which means many young people don’t get introduced to these figures at all.
That means young people- especially girls- miss out on meeting hundreds (or more) of their foremothers. They missing out on crucial pieces of women’s history,Asian American history, Black history, LGBT history: American history, AND they miss out of being inspired by the thousands of trailblazing, changemaking, incredible women in our nation’s history.
In a society that often feels hostile and dismissive of women and girls, it can be so inspiring and reassuring to hear the stories of girls and women who broke barriers, shattered expectations and did incredible things in their own time, in societies unwelcoming and unbelieving of them.
These stories show that girls don’t HAVE to be on the front lines, making discoveries- although they can do those things too and that the ordinary things that make us who we are can impact history.
The 2020 planner introduces dozens of girls and women who changed the face of: literature, sports, poetry, music, politics, technology, every aspect of culture you can imagine- including 80+ new girls and women! Each day includes a young woman or event that changed American history or an idea for a fun and empowering activity.
There’s also a free download available that includes movie and book lists, mantras, and activities that will leave you in awe of the power of women and girls.
The 118 page planner is spiral bound, so it lays flat, with a cardboard cover, 5″ x 7″; perfect for putting in your backpack or purse. It’s beautifully designed by Abbie Gately and printed in color, with a week at a glance AND designated spaces for weekly goals and affirmations.
