Girl Power! Join the staff of Girls Empowered and other Girl Scouts to take a closer look at how women are portrayed in the media. Explore negative stereotypes about women put forth in TV/movies, music, and magazines. Participate in an interactive discussion with other girls about how these stereotypes in the media affect young girls’ self-identity, self-esteem, and body image. After gathering all the facts, create your own TV show, song, or magazine to combat negative stereotypes of women by portraying “real” girls in a positive light. Girls must attend BOTH sessions to earn the award set. All troops must meet girl-adult ratios for their group. Individual girls must be accompanied by a registered adult. *Includes the Media Journey Award set.
