We all want to raise intelligent and empowered girls. But it isn't always easy. How do you teach your daughter about women who are doing amazing things if you don't know a ton of women who are doing amazing things? Maybe you're looking for help encouraging a positive body image or you just need guidance on how to answer those awkward puberty questions… without sounding awkward.

That's where these websites come in. Some are resource-heavy with great videos and interviews, and some offer helpful materials like books, games and toys. All of them aim to help girls and women feel comfortable in their own skin and empower them to do great things.

Their blog includes lists of books for different categories, like bedtime books, books about charity and community service, or toys and games for indoor active play.
