GEENA DAVIS ON ACTING + GENDER IN MEDIA

Geena Davis

The more hours of television a girl watches, the fewer options she thinks she has in life. And the more hours a boy watches, the more sexist his view becomes . . . 80% of the media consumed worldwide is made in the United States so we are, to a great extent, responsible for exploiting this negative image of women and girls.”

-GEENA DAVIS

WATCH THIS! Davis talks about acting and her work with her own Geena Davis Institute for Gender in Media.

They produced a brilliant documentary last year and have since published loads of videos about women in various industries and places of origin.
