Global Visionaries Takes Action for the 'Miss Representation' of Girls

April 13th, 2015 · No Comments

Global Visionaries, a Seattle-based non-profit working to empower youth to be global leaders, launches a film and lecture series centered around social justice and global issues.

The Visionary Viewings Film & Lecture Series is a community engagement and fundraising initiative organized by GV’s Youth Board. Each month from January to June, each team will select and present a film and speaker on a topic.

“You Can’t Be What You Can’t See”

Miss Representation interweaves stories from teenage girls with provocative interviews, to give an inside look at the media and its message. The film’s motto, “You can’t be what you can’t see,” underscores an implicit message that young women need and want positive role models, and that the media has thus far neglected its unique opportunity to provide them.

Social Action = Change

The film includes a social action campaign to address change in policy, education and calls for socially responsible business. GV has partnered with Young Women Empowered for this film and the event has been prepared by young women from GV’s youth board program.

Bring every woman and girl you know for a very powerful message about social justice for girls.
