I worry that young girls too often mute their voices when it comes to expressing anger and injustice. I cheer when I see courageous, assertive, confident girls like Katy speak up for issues they believe in. This girl is going to change the world…I hope I can be the kind of adult that helps her.

Great article in the Huffington Post today about the MPAA’s denial of the appeal to downgrade the “R” rating for the “Bully” documentary. Check out the article, watch the trailer (have tissues available!) and sign the petition to help make this film available to the under-17 crowd who can really benefit from its powerful message.
As filmmaker Lee Hirsch says:

I was reminded of this truism when Tony Shin sent me this infographic on cyberbullying. While most books, articles, and programs focus (righteously!) on the targets of bullying, his work examines the roots of bullying, calling this a predictable psychological behavior whose roots are usually planted in early childhood. An interesting perspective. What do you think?
