Images in the Media

SMART Girls at the Mount Vernon Boys & Girls Club learned an important lesson about images in the media and how they affect our self-image. Each girl was given a magazine targeted at women. Then, they were asked to find an advertisement featuring a woman that they found interesting. One by one, SMART Girls showed their ad, said why they chose it, and explained what standards for girls and women they thought the ad was trying to convey. Through this exercise, SMART Girls discussed many difficult questions about how our society portrays women.

SMART Girls is held every Friday from 4:30pm – 5:00pm.
