"Respect Me, Don't Media Me" was produced in a workshop with Sisters Empowering Sisters, a program of the Girls Best Friend Foundation. The film examines the portrayal of young women in music videos and other media. It also asks the questions: "What do these kinds of portrayals mean for young women?", "How do they affect our lives, our decisions and our relationships?" and "What can we do to change them?"
Girls! Action! Media! workshops create a safe space for young women to talk about issues of concern and develop as community activists while learning important media, arts and technology skills.
We partner with programs for under-served girls and young women, equipping them to use technology and media creatively to examine and ultimately transform their lives and their communities.
