For some in the United States, it may have felt like the recent election was a blow to girl power. And though many were unhappy that the US will have to wait a little longer for their first woman President, women have come a long way for a gender who less than a hundred years ago were unable to vote. That’s girl power!
OK, enough politics, more entertainment and fashion (this is about 12 Lena Dunham T-Shirts after all). A performer that embodies the spirit of girl power is Lena Dunham. Always a strong female role model, she is also a talented actor, writer and director. And she will go down in entertainment history for being the first woman to win a Directors Guild of America Award for the directing of her comedy, Girls.
Girls is Lena Dunham’s HBO series that realistically depicts the struggles of the modern woman. It shows them as flawed, but dealing with their mistakes in comic, bold and in some case offensive ways. The characters even take ownership of having HPV by saying “all adventurous women do,” which breaks stereotypes and taboos at the same time.
OK, these Girls, may not be for everybody, but the pride of the powers of girls should be. So this boy dug up 12 Lena Dunham shirts that you girls (and hey, some of you boys, too) should be proud to wear!
