 From cable television to glossy magazines, media can be rife with problematic messages for girls. Parents have two options: clamp down on media exposure, or teach girls how to critique content. In this presentation, OSU-Cascades professor Elizabeth Daniels looks at the media targeted at young people today and discusses strategies for helping youth—particularly young girls—develop skills that will help protect them against the negative effects of those repeated messages.
