Girls Get the Message helps girls develop the skills to wade through the media messages that bombard them daily. The program encourages girls to evaluate the messages in media such as television shows, films, CDs, newspapers, websites, music videos, magazines and video games. The program helps girls recognize stereotypes in media and differentiate between those stereotypes and their own lives. Girls learn to “read” media messages with a critical eye as they consider issues in the media business and the roles of women and minorities “behind the scenes” in media careers.
After lunch, please bring a brown bag lunch, we will explore a healthy snack alternative and discuss how to make good food choices in a world with many competing time constraints and unwholesome, yet tempting options.
The workshop is designed for girls 10-12 years old.
