Every day, girls are influenced by the media. Whether it is internet ads, videos, social media or tv, girls are influenced in some way on a consistent basis.

Media Literacy is a program which focuses on increasing girls’ awareness of the power of the media. Through interactive activities, girls become knowledgeable about the effects of media messages on girls and women. Girls learn to analyze what is produced in media and advocate for change in entertainment, news, and advertising. Girls are provided opportunities to create media that are more realistic and reflective of their lives, the positive use of media, and careers in media.
