Investigating Media 007

Project: “Girls in Real Life”
 
Who: Girls and young women (ages 13-25) 
What: will discuss the social pressures they face because of the media/friends/family 
When: ASAP- Spring 2012 
Where: middle school#1: IS 141, Astoria, Queens – high school#1 : LaGuardia Arts High School, NY,NY – college#1: Hunter College, NY, NY
