Commission on media images launched

It was announced late last week that a new "Healthy MEdia" commission would be launched to promote positive images of women and girls, founded by Geena Davis, former FCC commissioner Deborah Tate and the Girl Scouts

"...Healthy MEdia: Commission for Positive Images of Women and Girls will lead the national conversation about how to ensure we are creating a positive media environment for all our children."

As someone who has worked very closely with the local branch of the Girl Scouts in Central Maryland, I am proud to be aligned with an organization that continues to be an authority on supporting girls development nationwide. I look forward to participating in a movement that will:

•Host the national discussion on best practices to promote positive and balanced images of girls and women.
•Convene industry leaders, subject-matter experts, youth representatives, media leadership, and the creative community to develop a blueprint on how to create a positive media environment for kids.
•Produce concrete recommendations to media and policy leaders.
•Champion media leaders who are promoting positive content and balanced images of girls and women.
•Work to secure industry-wide, public commitments to take steps toward positive change.
