Girl Power on a Mission

It's not easy being a young girl today. The media often promotes ideals that are unhealthy, unattainable or just plain negative about women.
Now, a brand new online community and webzine is taking an extraordinary approach to steering impressionable tween girls in a positive and empowering direction!

Girl360.net is on a mission to connect with girls between the ages of 9 and 13 and give them a better sense of the women who have come before them, the unique role models all around them and, most importantly, the potential within them! It’s all about helping the next generation of female leaders realize their own “superpowers.”

Founded by two long-standing advocates of women's issues, Girl360 is designed to speak to girls in a language they can relate to while providing the stories of history’s and today’s trailblazing females making an impact. And NOT only their accomplishments -- but the challenges, struggles, and hurdles they faced along the way too. The REAL stories of inspiring girls and women (who were once pre-teens too!).

Anne is writer and advocate whose essays on issues effecting women and girls have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, and numerous other publications. She was recently named one of People Magazine's "Heroes Among Us" and is the 2008 winner of the "Making a Difference for Women Award" from Soroptimist International. Randi is a graduate of Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and a political advocate with over two decades of experience championing issues and initiatives that have a deep impact on the health, well-being and happiness of women and girls.
