Girls Investigate: Is the Media a Mirror?
Intriguing project by Women's Media Center
Girls Investigate: Our Views on Media features original commentary and video by young feminists who are thinking critically about different forms of media.
The third part of the four-part web series is Girls Investigate: Is the Media a Mirror?, by high school junior, Culley Schultz. Schultz explores the portrayal of women and girls in mainstream media. Through her investigation, she examines how her peers perceive this portrayal, while highlighting the ways in which the media lacks substantial, meaningful programming marketed to teenage girls.
