It was International Women's Day and the Zee Zees were ready to celebrate. The Girl-Zees were more of Interplanetary Women than International, but they wanted to celebrate regardless, so they all gathered to discuss what to do. They decided the best way to celebrate girl power was to test their limits by doing the things they'd been putting off or afraid to try.
Winzu wanted to try flying through hoops. She asked Zayla, who designed playgrounds, to help her make an obstacle course for the sky. When it was finished, Winzu gave it a whirl, trying to fly as fast as she could through the hoops. It took her three times to get through all the hoops in one go but she kept trying until she made it.
Gizmo wrote a haiku about each of her fellow Girl-Zees and what she liked most about them. She'd always been hesitant to write about anyone she knew in case they didn't like it, but today she gave it a go. When she gave each of the Girl-Zees the poem she had written about them they were delighted and thanked her for her kind words.
Zelda tried to make a new dress. It was a complicated design with lots of stitches and she wasn't sure she'd be able to make it, but she went slow and was careful and didn't give up when she made mistakes. It took her all day but when she finished the dress she was bursting with pride at her hard work and how it had paid off.
Zelly wanted to learn a new swimming stroke but she didn't know anyone who could teach her. She watched video tutorials and examples and kept practicing on her own, trying again and again to get the moves right. When she had the stroke down she swam laps around the pool to show it off to the other Girl-Zees who all clapped and cheered for her.
All the Girl-Zees did something to challenge themselves and test their limits. At the end of the day they were tired but proud of themselves. "The math checks out," Zoomer said. "When we give it our all, there's nothing we Girl-Zees can't do."
"I think the best part about being a girl," Fitz said, "is that it's part of who I am, and who I am is an incredible and capable Girl-Zee." All the other Girl-Zees agreed. Being a girl was a wonderful thing.
