Social justice for the younglings.

If you think 7 years old might be too early to introduce children to the concepts of feminism, I got to say: silly rabbit, feminism is for everyone!

Messages that stir them towards developing empathy, compassion and a proper sense of right or wrong?

That just so happens to be what these feminist books for 7-year-olds would do for your kid. Check them out!
