20 Backpacks that Empower Girls: Drop the Stereotype

Pin It
The back to school season is here! Lots of new backpack shopping being done these next couple weeks. I always love seeing empowered girls (and boys) that push past the gender stereotypes in their backpack selection. Girls shouldn't be pushed towards pink and purple princesses and boys shouldn't be encouraged to opt for "masculine" themes like superheroes. That being said, here are 20 great examples that empower children on their first day of school.

Now. Before I get any rash comments about focusing more on girls than boys, I'm going to remind you of the big push these past few years to let little girls break the stereotype and enjoy "boy activities". Likewise, if you've been a reader for a couple years now, you'll know that I feel strongly on discouraging gender bias in children. Boys being able to express themselves in the same way without being labeled as "feminine" or a "sissy boy".
 
 So here are these amazing backpacks!
