Girls Fight Back! Yes, I'm Pretty Enough

This half- or full-day experiential workshop addresses the issue of body image for young women. Participants will examine the impact of popular images on young women's self-esteem and expectations. Through introspective exercises, students will analyze the sources and the impact of gender stereotypes on their lives. They will also be involved in guided discussions using popular teen magazines to critically examine different aspects of stereoptypes. This age-appropriate workshop can be tailored to young women from sixth to 12th grade.
