Shero Sub Box Printables

Helpful Links:

The Feminist eZine: The History of Riot Grrls  – This gives a pretty good overview of what it meant to be a Riot Girrl and why the movement was so important.

Riot Grrls Spotify Playlist – I did a search and found this playlist to be a fairly good mix of music. Be aware that many songs will have explicit lyrics so listen at your discretion.

We Should all be Feminists Ted Talk – There are a lot of great Ted Talks that fall under the Feminism category, but I think this is probably one of the best.

My Dream Can – you can purchase additional copies of the picture book, lesson plans, and a special can with which to bury your dreams.
