Girl Empowerment – Dynamo Girl

I saw that Barney’s has a great window about Girl Empowerment and there are many programs (local and beyond) that empower girls.  I want to support a local Mom who has a program for empowering girls through sports – Dynamo Girl.


Here is a parenting workshop they are offering on the Upper West Side – at The Mandell School on Nov. 1st.

Say hi to amazing Mom – Vanessa Bennett – who started Dynamo Girl and who will help lead the next generation of brilliant and strong NYC Girls!
