Sarah Palin to girls: Stop taking selfies and go hunting and fishing instead

Sarah Palin wishes young girls would stop taking racy selfies and instead get out of the house and do some outdoor sports like fishing and hunting, E! reported.

"I think this world would be better off having more young women holding a fish in a picture than holding their camera in front of a bathroom mirror, talking a selfie," said Palin, 49.

"I want to see young girls get out there and do what my daughters have been able to do. My girls want to kind of be a spokesperson for a healthy lifestyle that I think can result in a more industrious America. So I want to see more girls kind of be turned on to that."

Sarah made the remarks while promoting her new TV show, "Amazing America with Sarah Palin," in which she will spotlight the rugged, outdoorsy lifestyle she grew up with in her native Alaska.

Palin, the former governor of Alaska and the 2008 U.S. vice presidential candidate, was raised fishing and hunting moose and caribou. She said these outdoor activities taught her valuable lessons about the importance of hard work and resourcefulness.

Palin raised her own children that way, with the entire family hunting their own food. Sarah said she hopes her new TV show will inspire young women to become more rugged and self-reliant.

"They need to be, and have to power to be, self-reliant," said Palin. "They can be independent and they, too, have equal opportunity to get out there and enjoy all that has been given to us here in America."

Palin, a mother of five, is a longtime workout fanatic who runs regularly. For most of her adult life, Sarah ran five to 10 miles almost every day, except during her pregnancies, when she switched to aerobic-exercise classes.

"Amazing America" debuts on the Sportsman Channel in April.
