Actress Geena Davis, former FCC Commissioner Debi Tate, and the Girl Scouts are launching a commission to push for healthier media images of women and girls.

 

Members of the commission include Katherine Schwarzenegger, daughter of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, Emme, the model, Nancy Snyderman, NBC Chief Medical Editor, and Ann Shoket, Editor-in-Chief of Seventeen Magazine. The National Cable and Telecommunications Assoc. and The Creative Coalition are also backing the effort.

A presser will be held next Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the National Assoc. of Broadcasters.

And yes, the publicist assures us, there will be Girl Scout cookies.

Wonderful!!! I am so glad to hear this. As a mom and scout leader it can be daunting enough to teach and encourage our girls to have a healthy mind and body image. It is good to hear that there is a continued [previously Dove brand] desire to have a healthier media image for our girls and ourselves as adult women.

Geena Davis is fantastic, and I'm glad she is part of the commission to push for healthier media images of women and girls. We certainly need this today.
