Veronica Arreola, assistant director at the Center for Research on Women and Gender at the University of Illinois at Chicago, says Girls Will Be is advancing ideas introduced a few years ago by brands such as Pigtail Pals and Ballcap Buddies and Princess Free Zone.
"Clearly girls and their parents want more than what is available at the mall," Arreola says.
Arreola says big clothing manufacturers minimize or don't recognize the impact their designs have on shaping a child's outlook.
"Boys and girls need more options so that they can be themselves," she says.
