Positive Role Model TV for Girls
Media representation matters, and these gems are great examples that show girls and women saving the day, making friends, and inspiring kids to be their best. Some of these series put girls front and center, while others feature women alongside men excelling in their field. While finding positive role models for girls on television has gotten easier over the past few years, it still isn't as easy as it should be. For top-rated girl power TV shows that have gone off the air, sometimes you'll need to hunt them down on a streaming service. But they're all worth a watch, and allow parents to talk to girls (and boys) about how women are portrayed in the media and what kinds of stereotypes they see. These discussions can counteract harmful messages kids get about body image, sexuality, and role models.
