We love to see “the fairer sex” pulling ahead in education — especially when considering that only a century ago women’s education was focused mainly on making them better wives and mothers rather than enriching their lives for outside employment. Women have earned more bachelor’s degrees than men since 1982 and more master’s degrees than men since 1987.

Wisdom. Its dictionary definition is “the quality or state of being wise; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action.” At age 16, Sacagawea exhibited wisdom when she led Lewis’ and Clark’s Corps of Discovery across thousands of miles, communicating with native tribes along the way to barter for necessities and to guarantee safe passage. What qualities of wisdom do you see in the girls you encounter every day? #graceandgrit #graceandgritbox #sacagawea #wisdom #lewisandclark

This holiday season, what will you get for the most wonderful girl in the world? How about a course in confidence with Rosie the Riveter? Or the perseverance of Olympic gold medalist Wilma Rudolph? These ladies paved the way for the girls of today to find the courage to believe in themselves and in their abilities. This is the kind of history that should repeat itself. Learn more with the link in our bio.
These boxes are too special for the elves alone to make, so Santa stopped by #ssfwholidaymarket to stock up on Grace & Grit items early. What sweet girl is on your list this year?
Let me do it. You tell me when you want it and where you want it to land, and I'll do it backwards and tell you when to take off. – Katherine Johnson (orbital calculation mathematician for NASA) #stem #femalemathematicians #nasa #girlempowerment

The glass ceiling took a decisive feminine fist last night from five women who ran in congressional midterms, scoring victories not only in their elections but also in more personal battles faced by women of diversity. That’s serious #girlpower. Congratulations to each of them! @ilhanmn and @rashidatlaib have become the first Muslim women elected to Congress. Omar replaces Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison (District 5), the first Muslim elected to Congress, after winning the primary for his seat in August. She also is the first Somali-American Muslim to ever become a lawmaker when elected to Minnesota’s House of Representatives in 2016. Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, ran unopposed in Michigan’s 13th congressional district. Expanding on a theme, @shariceforcongress and @deb4congressnm will become the first Native American congresswomen. In New Mexico’s 1st congressional district, Haaland will replace Democratic Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham, who vacated the seat to run for governor, and Davids will unseat Kansas GOP Rep. Kevin Yoder, who had served the state’s 3rd congressional district. Davids is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation, while Haaland is an enrolled member of the Pueblo of Laguna. Finally, @ocasio2018 will take her place as the U.S. House’s youngest member of Congress at age 29. Representing New York’s 14th congressional district, the first-time candidate of Puerto Rican heritage will serve a constituency that is 46 percent Latino, 24.6 percent white, 16.4 Asian and 11 percent black. ° ° ° #graceandgritbox #vote #midterms2018 #voterregistration #votesaveamerica #girlempowerment #rolemodel #femaleempowerment #womenempowerment
