Girls Make Media

More girls are producing media today than at any other point in history, and they are using virtually every format currently possible to do so. Tracing the sites in U.S. society where girls' media production is currently encouraged and supported, Girls Make Media examines girls' creative expression and identity exploration through the films, zines, and websites they produce. Combining analyses of girl-made media and the communities and social contexts that inspire their creation and facilitate their diffusion, Girls Make Media furthers our understanding of not only contemporary girlhood and girls' culture, but also American popular culture.
