Media plays a major hand, insisting girls' self-worth is based on their sex appeal. We're a nonprofit that teaches girls and young women to define their own worth, and strike back. Participants use social media to: express their true selves; post positive; challenge sexist media messages; and take a stand on meaningful issues. Girls don’t need a makeover; media does.
