Amelia Bloomer Project

on March 6, 2009

One of my courses for educators in the Seattle Pacific University SPIRAL Program is  “Empowering Girls with Stories: Strong Female Voices in Children’s and Young Adult Literature,” I am always on the look-out for award winning books which honor and celebrate strong female voices.

The Amelia Bloomer Project honors “exemplary books that celebrate the strengths of girls and women and nourish their potential”. The Amelia Bloomer Project produces an annual list of books for young readers, birth through age 18, that contain significant feminist content. We need not just cardboard “feisty” or “spunky” female characters, but tales of girls and women who have broken barriers and fought to change their situations and their environment.

The 2009 List has been announced.
