Spotlight on Website: New Moon Girls June 30, 2013

This is a rather different spotlight than we’ve had previously, but it goes with the theme of inner beauty from my previous post. New Moon is a fun, feminist website where girls pre-teen+ can safely connect and have fun, all while boosting their confidence and sharing their creativity. New Moon also presents a bimonthly magazine  with articles by girls and featuring their artwork and writing. It’s fun, but best of all, it’s activism- New Moon has worked extensively on changing Barbie’s unrealistic figure, which helps promote eating disorders, and de-color-coding Target’s sexist, stereotypical blue-and-pink toy aisles. The website, newmoon.com, requires a paid subscription, but it’s definitely worth it for girls. They’ll make friends, learn to promote feminism and equality, and show their creative side doing it. Plus, there’s nothing better to boost your confidence and happiness than having your work published in the magazine. The message boards have sections for debates, roleplays, condolences for those grieving, and there’s even two whole message boards dedicated to changing the world, which is awesome! New Moon is great and helps promote inner beauty. I’m a member of the Girls Editorial Board (I work on the magazine), and I love the whole thing. If you are a teenage girl, join New Moon today! If you’re not, tell the young females you know. :3
