Faith Evangeline of Girl World Design and the awesome Evil Pawn Jewelry has created a portion of her website that goes out to the ladies: the Girl Revolution section works to engage female positivity and be an open space where women of all ages can spread a little (or a lot) of joy about themselves and each other.
