Pretty Sexy Sassy: How Girls and the Media Consume One Another is a youth-made video created by the 2013 Research Training Intensive cohort. The video examines media sexism and its impact on girls and young women, drawing on interviews with the RTIs, their friends and younger girls, existing research, and media clips and images.
The full-length (18-minute) video has been broken up into brief, viral-ready webisodes.We’re pleased to share Episode 1: What We Watch (and Learn), which can be streamed in the viewer below, and can be easily shared on social media! Click here to check out Episode 2: Can it be Different?
