I have always been aggravated by Disney's portrayl of mothers in their G movies. They are usually dead or cruel. When Geena Davis sat down to watch G movies or TV shows with her daughter, she was outraged to see few females at all in them and those females that were in them had the same occupation: royalty. Of course, Geena has clout as an actor so she raised money and commissioned an official study. Last week at the Wall Street Journal Conference on Women and the Economy she talked about the study results. They are fascinating....Now the next step, doing something to change what she found.
Apparently, Davis went on to say: Why do girls need role models on the big and small screens? Because "if you can see it, you can be it"
