What a Girl Wants
by Media Education Foundation; 2001
During the Spring of 2000, eleven girls aged 8 to 16 from a variety of socio-economic backgrounds and two classrooms of middle and high school students were interviewed about their views on media culture and its impact on their lives.
Their insightful and provocative responses provide the central theme of the film, a half-hour examination of how the media represents girls. Juxtaposing footage culled from a typical week of television broadcasting with original interviews, What a Girl Wants will provoke debate and, ideally, act as a catalyst for change in media content
