Girls have to fight against a lot of the same stuff we did growing up…peer pressure, exploitation, etc. But what worries me the most is this trend that caring about something isn’t cool. That it’s better to comment on something than to commit to it. That it’s so much cooler to be unmotivated and indifferent. Our culture can get so snarky and ironic sometimes and we kind of wanted Smart Girls to celebrate the opposite of that.
—  Amy Poehler, on empowering you girl thru her web-series, “Smart Girls At The Party.”

We can’t emphasize enough how important it is for those of you over 18 to vote in the primaries. TODAY is Super Tuesday, which means registered voters in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, and Virginia need to show up to the polls.

18 to 24 year olds represent 33% of the population, but only account of 7% of the voters. You think the government isn’t about you? How many of you have student loans to pay? How many have credit card debt? How many want clean air and clean water and civil liberties? How many want jobs? How many want kids? How many want their kids to go to good schools and walk on safe streets? Decisions are made by those who show up.

Who wants to have reproductive rights and control over their own body? Show up for your future, gurls. FIND YOUR POLLING PLACE HERE.
