People are barraged by media images that unrealistically glamorize and sexualize women and girls. Explores the impact these messages have on young women's physical, psychological, and emotional health. Through the voices of a racially and culturally diverse group of women and girls, the interplay of race and ethnicity, body image, dieting and eating disorders, and the early influence of toys and cartoons are all overviewed. Offers tools to begin dissecting and questioning the media that influence human behaviors, attitudes, and values. The contrasts between how these women see themselves and the highly idealized imagery that dominates TV and print advertising are particularly stark, yet the group's comments also reveal the conflicting responses they have to the media and consumer culture-how people participate in and resist it at the same time. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) audio description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
