You Can Fly - A Giveaway in Honor of Women in Aviation International

Pourquoi Princesse and Princess Awesome are joining forces to bring you the You Can Fly Giveaway in honor of Women in Aviation International!

It’s not enough to tell girls they can be anything. They need to learn about how other women became pilots including all the obstacles they overcame, and to see the world around them reflect that aviation is for girls, too.

Watch our contest video and meet the amazing Dorine Bourneton! She is the first  disabled female aerobatics pilot in the world and inspires us with her amazing story of resilience, courage and determination.

“Falling is an accident. Staying down is a choice."
-Dorine Bourneton

Read about our friends at Women in Aviation International by their Director of Communications, Kelly Murphy - and learn why it's so important to give girls and women the opportunity to fly.

Ok Google - why are your product category codes sexist?
Ok Google - why are your product category codes sexist?

Google Shopping ads rely on the product category code to decide what the product is - and therefore who should see the product and how much the merchant is going to pay Google to place an ad for it in front of that person.

If the code for the product we are selling is not available, there is no way for us to explain what the product is and who should be seeing the ad. This wastes our money by putting ads in front of people who don't need to see them. And it keeps us from getting seen by the people who do want to find us.

So, as I was assigning product category codes to our Princess Awesome products, I found out right away that we were going to have trouble running ads. I could not tell Google specifically what we were selling because the correct categories for our products do not exist within their schema.
