Looking for Something?



Powered by Girl is an online media activism campaign for girls by girls. We exist to interrupt media sexism in all it’s racist, classist, homophobic forms with humor, satire, and the online tools at our disposal. Whether it’s a drawing, cartoon, poem, satiric remake of an ad, or a good old rant against the patriarchy, every post here is original work from our fantastic social media interns and guest girl bloggers. We consider ourselves culture jammers who call out the absurdity of who and what we’re expected to be in the media and in our daily lives.

We are on every corner of the Internet. Find us on Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook.

Powered by Girl is co-sponsored by the Girls Advisory Board of Hardy Girls Healthy Women and the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department at Colby College.

Hey there!

We are Powered By Girl. We're young women who write for young women. We do it because we believe there's more to 13-25 year old women than clothes, boys and celebrities. So please have a look at our stuff, and join us!
