Calling all girl activists!


SPARKteam applications are now open! We’re seeking girl activists who are passionate, driven, and want to fight the sexualization of girls and women in media. SPARKteam activists work together with the help of adult leadership to plan & carry out global, national, and local actions that push back against sexualization and objectification while promoting girls’ rights to a healthy sexuality. 

In 2013-2014, SPARKteam members did a ton of cool stuff, from documenting the lack of women and people of color in Google Doodles to calling out terrible marketing aimed at teen girls; from speaking in front of global policymakers at the UN to blogging about the daily impact of sexualization and its bedfellows: racism, sexism, heterosexism, & cissexism. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

And now: we want you! Here’s what we’re looking for: 

  • girls—both trans girls and cis girls—between the ages of 13 and 22
  • who are passionate about activism, organizing, and changing the world
  • who want to work with about 30 other girls and a few adult organizers to dream, scheme, and carry out large and small actions
  • who have 15-25 hours a month to dedicate to SPARK
  • who are located anywhere on this beautiful earth! SPARK is a US-based organization but SPARKteam membership is open to girls globally 

Click through for all the details! Applications are due May 7th, 2014, at 11:59 PM eastern time. Got questions? Email sparkteam@sparksummit.com and we’ll get back to you ASAP!

How to block Sponsored Posts on your Dashboard



Tumblr has recently introduced Sponsored Posts. These posts can come from anyone, regardless of whether or not you follow them, and are primarily for advertising. If you want to block them, simply install Tumblr Savior and blacklist “sponsored_badge_icon” (without the quotes).

Oh wow OK let’s please signal boost this because some recent ones have been GIFs of horror and so on, and that makes Tumblr incredibly unsafe for a good amount of people. S:
