Those Girls: Smart Girls at the Party with Amy Poehler

I would be hard-pressed to find someone on this planet that I adore more than Amy Poehler. She's funny, she's adorable, and I just recently found out that she's doing amazing things for young girls. Amy Poehler has an awesome YouTube channel just for girls called Smart Girls at the Party, where she interviews fabulous young women who are doing great things in their community, gives advice in the Ask Amy section, and launches local campaigns to make our communities brighter.

In her own words, Poehler explains Smart Girls at the Party as "celebrat[ing] extraordinary individuals who are changing the world by being themselves." Below are my two favorite videos for you to check out. The first is an interview with a 7 year old about feminism (watch the dance party at the end for some famous faces!) and the second is part of the Ask Amy series, addressing negativity. (A perfect addition to our Those Girls series.) Enjoy, and pass it along to anyone who has a daughter!
