The sexualization and objectification of girls is prevalent in U.S. culture and media. It happens in all forms of media — television, music videos, advertising, video games, song lyrics, clothing stores, and across the Internet. Studies have shown that this is harmful to girls and women in their personal development.
Ample evidence indicates that sexualization negatively impacts girls in a variety of domains, including cognitive functioning, physical and mental health, sexuality, and attitudes and beliefs

At Photography with Purpose, we flip the script with media-based workshops where girls discover and explore their own unique gifts and talents, learn to decode media messages, gain skills in media creation, and more.
