“Do you think they will laugh when they attack you?” the police constable asked the schoolgirls. “You must strike back with anger.” In the wake of a series of brutal assaults against women and girls in New Delhi, India, the local police department is offering free self-defense classes for women and girls — a combination of karate, taekwondo and judo — and “gender sensitization” courses for boys, teaching them how to be more respectful. 📹: @nytimes

Dexter joined me for my practice today 😍😍😍 He LOVES working out with me, and really enjoys yoga too (as does Jack). I usually workout first thing in the morning because I prefer to be alone. However, on days that I skip that morning workout, I love when the boys join me. I really SEE the impact that I'm making on them. Even if they don't make it the entire 30 minutes (they're kids, short attention span, lol). I'm setting an example. They're watching me. It's beautiful. 💙💙
I'm looking for women like me who want to set this example for their children. You can join at anytime, but when is better than now? ⏳

P.S. Dexter rolled up and put away our mats while I was typing this. 😍

This is my dear friend Brooke with her son Tanner at the women's march in January. We couldn't go together, but we stood in solidarity; her in Medford and me in Seattle. Do you teach your kids to have a positive influence on humanity? How? .

Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different by Ben Brooks
.
We have seen a number of books come out recently which celebrate inspiring and daring women who have changed the world. This sends a fantastic message to young children providing them with a range of role models to look up to.
.
I posted an article on Facebook last week about how working toward gender equality means we need to change how we raise our girls AND boys (link in bio). Boys are often told to be strong and not to cry. And the heroes they look up to in books, TV shows or films tend to be strong, tough guys. But it is important to teach boys that it is okay to show their emotions and feelings, and that there are many attributes that are admirable. Inspiring men in this book include Mahatma Gandhi, Barack Obama, David Attenborough, and Ryan Hreljac. It would be a great addition to the bookshelves of little boys and girls.

"The World is not a Rectangle" by Jeanette Winter

Although we've been looking at art books, I had to add this story in because even though it focuses on an architect, it makes you appreciate the art that goes into the process of designing buildings.
This book tells the story of the architect Zaha Hadid, an Afghani woman. The illustrations do such a great job showing her vision of the world as a young girl and how it translated into her designs. Flip through the pics to see some of the pages that show how she turned images from nature into stadiums and auditoriums. It also does a fantastic job demonstrating the battles she fought as both a Muslim and a woman in a male dominated industry.

My son was fascinated by the book because he wants to be an architect. I am so glad I can read him a story with a strong female lead. There are a lot of girl power messages out there but having two boys I know that my role of raising feminist boys is equally important.
Any other suggestions for great books for raising feminist boys?

Planting seeds early; feminism is important for boys and girls.
Thanks to @naoelder for one of our favorite books.

"Gigi, bring me your shoes." He sure does pair his rompers with his snow boots. #instagraham #feministboys @freetobekids

Who remembers the retro fisher price telephones they had as a baby? 🙋🏼 I don't know whether it's the nostalgia or the aesthetics that makes me determined to give Phoenix all things old school, but I had set my heart on finding one of these retro telephones since he was born and finally, today, I found one! Granted, she's very pre-loved but she's got more loving to come! 💕 I also set out to find the "goodnight stories for rebel girls" book to educate Phoenix about wonderful women but found this one which is a bit closer to his age range for now. 💪🏼👩🏼‍🚀👩🏽‍🎨👩🏾‍🔬👩🏼‍⚕️ (Added cuteness for the nautical top i thrifted) #retrotoys #thriftstorefinds #waterstones #feministboys

Happy Mother’s Day to those of you celebrating. And much love to those of you who feel far from celebratory. .
Over the last few weeks my mind has turned to the new wave of feminism we’re seeing. #metoo, changes in the birth world, fighting for equal pay- all of these things make me so hopeful that real change is coming. But what needs to happen? And how does it impact on our children?
I had so much to say that I wrote it all in a blog post (link in my bio, and I’ve tagged some of those mentioned or who might be interested). One thing I’m struggling with though, is how our boys may be left behind a little. So many of the feminist leaning books I have for my daughter portray men as a bit feckless. I can’t find anything that really speaks to my climbing, unicorn loving, sparkly shoe wearing, superhero obsessed boy. We have @keith_negley’s brilliant book ‘Tough Guys Have Feelings Too’... any other recommendations?
