Help Common Dreams End the Year Strong

In this fight for our future, we must all rise together

Disrupting the Pink Aisle

Abby Zimet

Check out this fierce (sort of) pack of more-than-just-a-princess girls storming an all-pink aisle of Toys 'R Us in a cool new ad for GoldieBlox, a construction toy for girls that Stanford engineer Debbie Sterling designed - and funded with a Kickstarter project that raised almost twice its stated goal. Coming soon to a (hopefully increasingly gender-neutral) store near you.


This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
