The first event of the Amazing Women, Inspiring Stories speaking series left many people in the audience asking, “What’s next?” At the event, Dr. Kathy Magliato and Jennifer Siebel Newsom addressed how stereotypes about women have effected them personally, as well as in their careers.  They are not alone.  Many women are currently  combating sexist stereotypes in their lives.  So, what can we do about it?  Ms. Siebel Newsom’s online campaign MissRepresentation.org suggests several actions to take.

We can start at home.  By questioning the media we are consuming and the messages this media is sending us and our families, we can adjust our media consumption to reflect our values. We can also ask questions at the dinner table such as, “Are women and girls encouraged to be leaders in the same way men and boys are?”  For more information about how to take action please visit MissRepresentation.org
