The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any. – Alice Walker
I came across this video today and I wanted to share it with every Little Bird out there. If you’re reading this and you know of any young ladies who might learn something from it, or be inspired by it, please go ahead and share it.
Simply put this video is a creative and artistic way of sharing some unfortunate statistics of the influence of the media on young girls. It is also a small preview of what can be learned from the award-winning documentary Miss Representation. Describing it will not do it justice. Just take the time to watch this trailer and then spread the word to all young girls everywhere. I you are an educator you can also request to have a screening of the film at your school or organization. You will not regret it and we will all be better for it.
The film is written, directed and produced by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, and premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Over a million people all over the world have seen the inspiring film to date, will you?
