Positive Role Model TV for Teen Girls
It's not always easy to find positive role models for girls on TV, and it gets even harder when those girls are teens. But if you dig a bit, you'll uncover a few gems that will show girls and women in a positive light. Some are new, some are old, but all these top-rated girl power TV shows are streamable somewhere. Even though the stars in these shows are great role models for girls and women, none of them are perfect. However, that's not a problem -- teens love relatable characters! They'll also help you 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.
