A well done movie about how females are portrayed in the media and the influence that these images have not only on our female children but our male children as well. We need to be very aware of this and vow to fight against this continuing overly sexual, power diminished, intellectually inferior, physical attributes images by using the power of the purse. These images are designed to sell products. Let's pledge to say~No More~ Great panel of women talking about their experiences and ways they handled the constant questions about their capabilities.
