  2. Teaching Girls to Be Their Own (Super) Heroes in a Time When Toy Aisles Teach Them Otherwise

    Marvelous.

    John Marcotte, founder of Heroic Girls and father of two superhero-obsessed daughters The Mary Sue has a great affection for, has a thing or two to say about showing girls that superheroes aren't "for boys." It's an incredibly important message, especially in a time when Marcotte says research has found that the toy aisles have never had a stronger gender divide—and that's just the tip of the gender normative iceberg.

  3. Girl Scouts Parody Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” To Sell Cookies Like BOSSES

    Sa-mosas, Do-si-dos - they can read you like a magazine.

    In the world of INSANELY ADORABLE today, we have these awesome Girl Scouts, Kaylee and Lexi who, rather than relying on their parents to do all the grunt work, upped their advertising game and starred in the best commercial ever to help their cookie sales to friends and family.

  4. Disney Channel Developing Movie About Little League Phenom, Mo’ne Davis

    It's like "Rookie of the Year," but REAL.

    Because apparently, being the first girl to pitch a shut-out game in the Little League World Series and the first Little League player ever to make the cover of Sports Illustrated (not only because of her insane pitching arm, but her talent in basketball and soccer, too) at thirteen isn't enough. Now, sports prodigy Mo'ne Davis is having her story adapted into a movie by the Disney Channel.

  5. Father/Daughter Team Expertly Recreates Jurassic Park in Stop Motion

    Hold onto your bricks.

    Paul Hollingsworth wanted to prove to his daughter that she could do anything with over $100,000 worth of LEGO—they spared no expense—and boy did he ever succeed. Their animated, abridged version of the original Jurassic Park nails the important moments from the original with all the personality and block jokes you'd expect from a LEGO production. Hailee Hollingsworth must be one clever girl.

  6. A Simple Reminder of How Much Representation Can Mean

    THE CUTE... IT BURNNNNNS!

    We've been anticipating Dreamworks' Home (starring Rihanna and Jim Parsons) for a while now. It looks adorable but it also stars a female protagonist of color and if you don't understand how important that is, just look at this picture.

  7. Finally, Computer Classes and Digital Literacy for Girls in Afghanistan

    There are a lot of confusing things happening in the Middle East: many girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan are discouraged and get hurt for trying to go to school, and when you combine that with a strong fear of technology, you get a whole lot of gender and education inequality. But there's a brave woman trying to fix that.

  8. The Problem With Lindalee

    She'll only be a cute kid for so long, but she may have these values the rest of her life.

    Her Doctor Who reviews and interviews are great. But seeing her in a context beyond Doctor Who shines a spotlight on the things that can go very wrong when a parent allows a small child to get caught up in the hoopla of the entertainment industry and internet fame. I really hope this isn't a sign of things to come. I'd hate for us to lose an awesome, smart Whovian and get stuck with a future host of Fashion Police instead.

ChickTech is dedicated to retaining women in the technology workforce and increasing the number of women and girls pursuing technology-based careers.
