Not all princesses need saving

Ever on the lookout for clothing and decor for girls that portrays the strong, amazing kids that they are, I was so happy to find this series of posters.

Artist Amanda Visell has created a wonderful quartet of strong girl posters with messages from I am my own captain to my favorite, I can save myself. I adore her illustration style, and so do folks who have put her talents to use on animated series like the Simpsons.

You can grab each one for $30 or if you just can’t pick among them–and I wouldn’t blame you–then you’re in luck. All four are just $100. –Liz

    I love seeing people promote empowering messages to young girls and in a cute way too! There are too many shirts and posters out there branding little girls as “princesses” and “barbies”. It’s great that these posters are cute enough to catch a child’s attention and remind them of their inner strength!

    I love these! What a great message to send to our future women! And it’s not male-bashing either. I hate those “girls are better” themes. These are perfect!
