A Mighty Girl is a website full of “books, toys and movies for smart, confident, and courageous girls.” They also have posts related to Mighty Girl costumes. Take a look at great examples of outfits, also a great inspiration for World Book Day costumes. Rebel Girls has produced great short videos on fairy tales with men in the role of the “lead” character.
