Positive Role Model TV for Girls
Finding positive role models for girls on TV isn't as easy as it should be. But if you dig a bit, you'll uncover a few gems that will show girls and women in a positive light. Sometimes you'll need to employ the DVD player or stream older series that have gone off the air for these top-rated girl-power TV shows. And some shows only feature women occasionally (like Iron Chef America), but when they do, they're great examples of strong girls and women. 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.
