Resources From Sugar and Spice But Not Always Nice

If you didn't make it to last Thursday evening's talk by Rosetta Lee on Alternative Aggression in Girls, you missed a fantastic presentation chock full of great information for those who work with girls.  Fortunately, she's provided the slides from her presentation (embedded below) along with a slew of other resources including some specifically for parents, teachers, and girls themselves.  Thanks again to those who made it out and especially to Rosetta for her good work in the community and to Seattle Girls' School for supporting that work.
