Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This positive and fun reality series features young women learning how to create brand new businesses in a supportive environment. While the women's intelligence and ingenuity are highlighted, it also shows how they must cope with leaving their comfort zones, as well as be willing to work with each other in order to be more creative. It also highlights the importance of failing in order to reach eventual success.

Girl Starter feels like a typical reality competition thanks to the challenges, eliminations, and other moments. However, all of this is offered in an environment that's meant to build women up, rather than humiliate, sexualize, or tear them down. As a result, die hard reality competition fans may not find it very entertaining. Nonetheless, it offers powerful messages that budding entrepreneurs of all ages and genders can benefit from.

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.
