From G Girls to G Fems: Teaching Young Girls about Feminism through Popular Culture

Teaching Young Girls about Feminism through Popular Culture

In contemporary American culture, young girls are exposed to many different ideas through mainstream media. More often than not, the media offers a foundation of knowledge for young girls, with issues such as body image and the latest fashion trends building the groundwork. This project involves a feminist analysis of popular culture through an array of mediated texts such as books, television, and movies to expose feminism to young girls. G Girls is a website dedicated to girl culture, providing young girls with the necessary skills to analyze these mediated texts through a feminist lens.
