Submitted By Liz Bathgate
Learn about the glaring reality on how mainstream media overwhelmingly disparage women and girls and the lasting impact. This can lead our girls to a life of suffering from Anorexia, Bulimia and the loss of self-esteem.
What can we do?
The Castro Valley /Hayward Branch of AAUW & The Castro Valley Unified School District are teaming up for a meaningful presentation about girlsÕ body image, self-confidence and how they are intertwined with the way women are portrayed on television and in media. This event will feature Marcella Raimondo, PhD, MPH and a screening of the acclaimed film ÒMiss Representation.Ó Free and Open to the Public. Light Refreshments will be served.
