Join the Demand for Better Media

You can join this movement and take the pledge here. I did. It’s easy.

There is so much good information on The Representation Project website. I hope you’ll take a look around.

After I signed the pledge, I received an email listing ways individuals can take action to change the media representation of men and women. One of them was to use your consumer power to support good media. I’ve been doing that for a long time.

Since I started this blog about 18 months ago, I’ve used words to support better media. My approach is to mention good things, bring attention to movies and TV that do represent women in non-stereotypical ways. One thing I have not done yet is to add the #mediawelike hashtag to a Pinterest board. I occasionally use the negative approach on Twitter with the #notbuyingit hashtag to mention media I don’t like.
