MEDIA IMAGES OF WOMEN AND GIRLS

The images of women and girls in the media became a hot button issue for Tech Up participants.

At that face-to-face meeting, Tech Up participants agreed to use Rebecca's talk as a jumping off point for a more structured online discussion. Over the next three months, Rebecca posed a series of questions to the women and girls of Tech Up. How did we grapple with the questions Rebecca asked? Click on the questions and see.
