Know about New Moon for girls?

Several months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Nancy Gruver, founder of New Moon, a magazine aimed at girls ages 8 to 12. New Moon is great – they're ad free, have girl editors and writers. They have a girl blog. Oh, and they're also based in Minnesota. 

Today in my inbox was a message from Nancy sharing the news that on September 1, they'll be launching New Moon Girls web community – like the magazine, it'll be ad free, girl-driven content. In the meantime, they're trying to raise money.  

Help them out, won't you?  It's a rare thing to find media aimed at building up girls' self-esteem rather than tearing it down. 

Here are a few easy things you can do: 

  • Purchase an annual subscription – 6 issues of New Moon Girls magazine – for a girl (or girls) you love.

  • Purchase an annual subscription of New Moon Girls magazine for your local library or school in your name
  • Purchase an annual subscription of New Moon Girls magazine as a gift for a girls' organization in your community such as your local Girl Scout troop, YWCA, or Women's Shelter

You can do that by going here.  

And please, spread the word! 

Love what you're reading here? Then you'll love Bitch magazine. The reviews are snappy, the analysis in-depth, the writers are downright sharp, and the illustrations so often belong in a frame that you'll have to move over other artwork.

If you don't have a subscription to our award-winning 80-page quarterly magazine, it's definitely time to start one.
