Just for Girls
February 5, 2014
State Capitol, Des Moines
Every year, high school girls
from across Iowa convene in Des Moines to learn about
the workings of the Iowa General Assembly and have an opportunity
to shadow women legislators and learn about how state laws
and budgets are developed and passed.
The day begins at 7:30 a.m. with an inside
look at the Iowa General Assembly and general guidelines
to follow. Girls will be introduced in both the Iowa Senate
and Iowa House of Representatives, and then paired with
female legislators. The day will conclude at 3 p.m. (Lunch is included.)
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity
to be involved in the annual Capitol Girls event! Space is
limited. If interested in participating in Capitol Girls 2015, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

There are so many websites out there for
you to see!
We hope you'll take a look at some we recommend because, let's face it, there are a lot out there that AIN'T so girl friendly...just sayin'...
Here you can find sites that talk about girls health in ways you can actually understand. Whew! They can help you learn stuff without having to feel embarrassed about asking an adult because you can chat online.
Everyone knows that one of the things girls worry about most is their body, but wouldn't it be nice to NOT worry so much. One of the best ways to get rid of worry is to laugh. Feed the Model is a great way to laugh about how crazy our world can get about looks and the rest of the website has cool info too!
If you are an aspiring writer or just like to read what others your age are writing, there are online magazines written by and for girls and teens that you should definitely scout out. Maybe you'll be their next guest writer, who knows???
