The Representation Project: Demand Better Media in 2015

The Representation Project has published this video to showcase the previous year’s best and worst in gender representation, saying, “While we have a lot to celebrate in 2014, some things aren’t changing fast enough.

What we like about this message: At Media Literacy Now, we believe we all need to take action to hold media owners accountable and demand change.
