    Love Geena Davis. I played softball from the age of 9, so growing up, A League of Their Own was by far one of my favorite movies. I think it was the first DVD I actually owned.

    I definitely think positive images of women in media will go a huge way to helping young girls’ self esteem.

    Rock on Geena Davis!

      Valerie, I opened a twitter account and almost never use it. I’ve been on it more since reading this than I have been in months. I might swing by the hasgtag later on tonight as well.
