Today’s Lady News: U.S. House Could Not Pass Anti-Child Marriage Bill

  • A bill to further protect girls around the world from child marriage failed to pass the House of Representatives yesterday, despite unanimously passing in the Senate. According to The Washington Post, some members of Congress had circulated memos urging people not to support the bill because it would “overturn pro-life laws.” However, the words “abortion” and “family planning” were not mentioned anywhere within the bill. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), who sponsored the bill, said: “The action on the House floor stopping the Child Marriage bill tonight will endanger the lives of millions of women and girls around the world. These young girls, enslaved in marriage, will be brutalized and many will die when their young bodies are torn apart while giving birth. Those who voted to continue this barbaric practice brought shame to Capitol Hill.” Frankly, I’m disgusted right now. [Washington Post]

The Black Baby Doll Project Puts Dollies In Hands Of Little Girls

One of the privileges I had as a little white girl was always having had toys that look like me. In fact, American Girl‘s brown-haired, brown-eyed Samantha Parkington doll looked almost exactly like me. Like little girls all around the world, I used to hold her, brush her hair, pretend she was my daughter and enjoy how beautiful she looked. That’s why I think The Black Baby Doll Project, which is in its 13th year, is so important. Sponsored by the Ida B. Wells Living Learning Community, a gateway program for first-year African-American students at Mary Baldwin College in Virginia, BBDP collects black baby dolls each year to gift to little girls so they have a toy who looks like them … Keep reading »

Princess-ification Is Everywhere … Even The Bible

I am no Biblical scholar. Far from it. But there is one thing I know from the Bible stories that I have read: there weren’t any princesses. Or frilly dresses, tutus or tiaras. Not so in My Princess Bible, a pink-washed Bible storybook for young girls about “God’s special princess.”

Little Girl Sings “The Distance,” Inspires Other To Go The Distance

Oh, how I pine for the days when I used to holler along to the music while riding in my car seat. Here, a 5-year-old girl belts it out like a banshee to the tune of Cake’s 1996 track “The Distance.” She’s got some serious singing skills — who knows, one day she could prove to be the next Britney. I like that she screams the song at the top of her lungs while rocking that little hair bow. Girls are awesome. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Do Little Girls Really Need To Use Makeup?

OK, for reals, what is up with people trying to make little girls older than they really are? What happened to parents who refused to let their daughters wear makeup until a certain age? Suri Cruise is trotting around in high heels and now British star Katie Price has decided that she wants to create a makeup line for little girls, inspired by her own toddler. This isn’t the first time that Katie’s made headlines regarding her daughter Princess — just a month ago, her ex was furious about a picture published online showing their daughter in heavy makeup and false lashes.
