Women and girls in pop culture and media

Today on Your Call: How should we respond to the sexualization of women and girls in the media?

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with the makers of the film, MissRepresentation, a documentary about the increasingly sexualized portrayals of women and girls in popular culture and news media and the continued absence of women in critical leadership roles.   How are these trends affecting our society--especially youth?  How do they impact you or those around you?  And how can we shift them?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
