Feminist Activism Project Coverage

A project that started as a class assignment has evolved into something much bigger. My fellow classmate (and friend) and I created a media literacy project that pointed out the sexist headlines in entertainment journalism. We deconstructed the headlines and recreated them to be more feminist-friendly. The INCREDIBLY cool result that we’ve gotten from this project is the amount of sites that have helped spread our message. Here is a link to the original project, called Breaking News: Deconstructing Entertainment Journalism. The spread of our project has helped us in our overall goal to bring awareness to media literacy and start a conversation on sexism in entertainment journalism. You can also learn about our project, and some of our findings, from the outlets that have covered it!
