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.

Our writers all identify as women, either all or some of the time.

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're fed up of media sexism, racism, transphobia and discrimination in all its forms. We create the alternative content that we want to see. Please have a look at our stuff, and join us!
