Though the platform is very simple and primarily a tool for promotion, it's a convenient way for teens to access information about inspiring women. The selection wheels make the process feel dynamic, and the ability to share quotations with friends might inspire teens to swap knowledge. Unfortunately, the combination of features is confusing: Since there's very little description of the movie and no explanation of how the quotations or overall spirit of feminism connect to the film, it feels disjointed. Those unfamiliar with the film might be confused about how all the features are connected. It would help if there were more cohesion between the elements, a bit more content, a way to create or contribute content, or some other ways to interact. As it stands, The Threat of Sex is a resource for finding and sharing inspiring quotations, but it definitely has potential to be much more.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
