Want to raise a daughter with great self esteem? This came across my path and I’d like to share it with you. As a working mother and a business woman, I think the underrepresentation of women in our media and high-profile, high power positions is severely hindering our daughters’, sisters’, and friends’ inclination to dream of success in positions of influence in our culture.
An advocate for women, girls, and their families, Jennifer Siebel Newsom uses her skills as a filmmaker, speaker, and CEO of the non-profit social action organization MissRepresentation.org to uncover the glaring injustices we live with every day yet fail to adequately see and ultimately change. She wrote, directed and produced the documentary film, Miss Representation, which exposes the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence in America. Her film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women, which make it difficult for the average woman to feel powerful herself. Her eighteen videos on Kids in the House offer tips on raising daughters with positive self-esteem, help to inspire women empowerment and more.
