Cover Girl Culture

What you can do to solve the problem: GET FIERCE!

There are many ways that you can affect change in your world.  Remember that you hold great power with your ability to vote with your dollars and this will go a long way toward making you a leader in affecting change. Here are a few suggestions:

  • every time you buy a magazine with unrealistic beauty ideals you are giving the editor your THANKS – be careful who you support!
  • Get Fierce! Boycott stores and products that sexualize girls and teens!
  • write letters to editors of magazines.
  • write to tv networks, show creators – they listen to feedback.
  • Do a Media-Detox.  Turn off the tv/media for a few days or a week if you can.
  • encourage your friends to see through the illusion. Ask your teacher to host a screening of Cover Girl Culture.
  • go without make-up!
  • Take back your power: YOU decide your happiness not a number on a scale or your wardrobe!
  • build your self-esteem so media won’t be able to prey on you. Self esteem is like a muscle; you have to flex it to strengthen it.
  • parents – you are your child’s role model. Be mindful what you say about your body and how you speak about others.  Your child learns what is valuable in a person from you.

Complaining about the problem is no longer enough — we have to stand-up and take action now!
