Girl Power: All Dolled Up
2011 | 24 minutes | Color | DVD | Order No. 121051
"The interviews with girls are honest and compelling, and they serve as prompts for girls and young women to reflect on media, beauty, role models, and ambition."
“[T]he film features smart girls, complex girls, girls who can reflect on their lives, and they've got opinions of their own. … Want to get girls and young women to talk about how their lives are affected by marketing? Show them this film!”
"Recommended. Shines a light on the impact that media and popular culture have on the development of girls’ identities."

Sarah spent 10 years as a classroom teacher in large urban school districts. When it became evident that media education was a critical missing link in the curriculum, she left teaching to go to Emerson College for a MA in media arts. She feels strongly that children need media literacy education in order to become critical consumers, and that we must pay particular attention to young women, whose sense of self is developing within this media/mediated context.
Sarah is a single mother of two, born and raised in Cambridge and currently working as a Media and Technology Specialist at an elementary school in Boston. (11/11)
