Jenn Neilson is the Founder of Jill and Jack Kids (www.jillandjackkids.com), a new social enterprise that makes playtime-worthy clothes for kids who dream beyond pink and blue. Visit http://bit.ly/jillandjackkids to support their Kickstarter campaign so they can go into production. Jenn is a graphic artist with a PhD in philosophy, and a passion for gender equality.
With kids growing up surrounded by advertising, movies and TV, toys, books, and clothes that tell them that some things are for girls, and others are for boys, we're already fighting an uphill battle if our goal is to raise girls who know that they can solve tough, real world problems, and boys who are interested in collaboration, not just competition.
