Remember this post about dream careers for girls.
Well, it seems as if some things never change.
This book was taken last weekend at an independent bookstore (yep, they still exist) in Roanoke, VA. Look closely at the photos on the covers of those books. Indeed, girls are still encouraged to become nurses and teachers. Certainly not truck drivers or pilots. I must say, I never had an interest in becoming a truck driver, but I may have considered pilot. It was just never brought up.
I won't go into another rant about this. But now I have visual proof to share with you.
And yes, Virginia, there is an independent bookstore. Oh, wonder of wonders! This is Ram's Head bookstore in Roanoke, VA. One of the coolest kid sections EVER.
We supported the independent bookstore. Items were purchased. Just not those shown in the photo.
