Art and entertainment reflect and shape the world around us, but not always in the best way. This class teaches girls to think critically about the media they consume. From literature to anime, we’ll practice critiquing media for feminist and sexist themes, empowering girls to better understand the world around them.
1. Introduction to Feminist Media
We read poems and other literature and discuss.
We watch clips from movies and television and discuss.
4. Pop Culture
We watch bits of anime, video games, and memes.
Girls choose a piece of media and present it, analyzing it with what they’ve learned.
