Teenwire Nominated for Webby Award

Planned Parenthood's teen-oriented website, Teenwire, has been nominated for a Webby Award in the Education category (not sure why it wasn't Health instead). Teenwire provides sex education and reproductive health information targeted to teenagers, in both English and Spanish language versions. Currently featured on the front page is information on the HPV vaccine, circumcision, and virginity (Read), a question and answers section (Ask), and interactive quiz and other features (Do). An Ask the Experts feature allows teens to get answers to their health questions. My favorite bit of the site so far is "Vulva: An Owner's Manual." Teenwire looks like a good resource for teens and young women who are not getting honest answers to their questions anywhere else.

In other Planned Parenthood news, Planned Parenthood of Greater Cleveland (not too far from where yours truly went to college) has partnered with a local artist to produce these fun necklaces and earrings as a fundraiser. If anybody is looking for graduation gifts, the brown flower necklace sure is cute. :)

Are your tax dollars going to fund deceptive clinics?
