Girls' version of the Dangerous Book for Boys

As a girl, I love this book and find a lot of this information useful. I was a tomboy big-time when I was a kid. I have carried that throughout my adult life as well. I dress-up and clean-up only when I have to. I do think that you could include a lot of the same information but maybe add some things like jacks, sewing, hopscotch rules, how to jump rope, how to double dutch, jump rope and double dutch songs, those clapping songs, the thing we used to do with string, Chinese fortune tellers, how to get pony tails straight, about all the important women and first ladies of our country. Important discoveries by women. Female reproduction and predominantly female maladies or diseases. Female artists, definition of aggressive and bitch, glass ceiling, how to do your nails (home manicure, which I still cannot do), dance steps. That is all I can think of off the top of my head. I am sure that there is a lot more you can put into the Girls' version. Any ideas out there?

Aprons. I don't wear them when I cook, but my mom always did. Now I know why! I have spots on most of my clothes LOL! I really think they look chic now, the vintage fabric aprons, like the ones my mom used to wear.
