Wednesday links round up

Free Press invites you to contact your representatives in Washington to stop the Comcast-NBC merger.

Girl Power is a new book about 90's revolution of women in music. We really enjoyed this review by 13-year-old Tavi, fashion superstar behind the Style Rookie.

PBS is sponsoring a contest for youth 13 and up to create a video diary about their lives. The best entries will be selected to air on April 11th alongside Masterpiece's presentation of the Diary of Anne Frank.

Shortie Fest is coming! The film festival for students ages 7-18 is accepting entries now through April 9.

Sociological Images did an excellent (and hilarious) round up of stereotypes of masculinity.
