YGG. You go girl. A simple phrase that can be applied to the many platforms where women are being empowered. Whether yelled to a girl who is kicking ass in a soccer game, a woman killing it as the CEO of a fortune 500 company, or your best friend standing up for herself in a difficult situation. YGG situations are all around us.

This blog explores what it means for men and women to be equal, the ways women are portrayed in the media, and groups and initiatives that are seeking to empower women. This blog is not for man-haters. Rather, this blog is for all people who are interested in the history, present status and future of women’s rights.
