Remember when I told you about the new Young Women’s program and how Mormon girls are being taught that they are pink?

Not long after I found this:  They say their aim is to:

   * Inspire, motivate and enthuse girls about the possibilities and opportunities open to them
    * Improve girls’ self esteem and confidence, raise their ambitions and ultimately improve their life chances
    * To challenge  the 'culture of pink' which is based on beauty over brains and to provide an alternative

Now that is an idea I can get behind.

And no, the irony of ranting against this “girls are pink thing” while having pink in my blog color scheme is not lost on me.
