We have crafted age-appropriate curriculum to go with each of our films. This curricula is free for educators, parents, students, and anyone who wants to learn more about how to challenge damaging gender norms and stereotypes. Download our free curriculum below.
For girls, gender stereotypes are the root cause of body hatred/shame, eating disorders, depression, low self-esteem, and a lack of leadership ambition. For boys, gender role expectations are the primary driver of depression, risk-taking activities, substance abuse, violence towards themselves and others, and suicide. And binary gender norms exclude and dehumanize gender non-conforming and trans youth, who have the highest rates of depression and suicidal behavior for teens. The Representation Project tackles the mental health crisis with impact films and companion curriculum (offered for free). Miss Representation ignited a national conversation about how sexist media diminishes girls’ self-confidence, safety, and leadership ambitions. The Mask You Live In, started another national conversation about the harms of traditional masculinity to boys and young men. The Great American Lie, examines the roots of systemic inequalities through a unique gender lens and Fair Play tackles the pressing issue of gender inequality at home. Women have historically shouldered domestic and care work in the home, even though children, families, and society benefit from equality at home.
