About

Overview

The feminist movement encourages equal rights, self-respect, and self-confidence for women of all classes and races everywhere in the world; so, theoretically, females everywhere should be coming into their own at last. Yet the media and internet portray females in a different light. This resource highlights the propaganda and stereotypes faced by girls almost as soon as they are born. Readers will learn how girls’ toys, music, and more can influence their image of women. More importantly, readers can access support and inspiration to stand up for themselves and thwart the often-damaging messages they are forced to navigate.
