WNBA President Talks Women, Media

Laurel Richie, WNBA President, took time during her visit with the San Antonio Silver Stars to host an open forum with teenagers from Girls Inc, one of the 10 semi-finalists in the 2012 Summer Team Up Challenge, presented by AT&T.

The Girls Inc. project is focused on how to change the portrayal of women in the media, and the group discussed sensative topics like the use of photoshop, the focus on outward appearance, and the roles women have in film, music videos and commercials.

Ms. Richie encouraged the girls to meet with TV, radio and media outlets to voice their opinions, and use their consumer power to take a stand against any objectification of women they see.
