Gender in Children’s Media

Event Details:
Wednesday, November 7th, 6:30PM
Fordham University
Lincoln Center Campus
McMahon Hall Room 109 (McMahon Lounge)*
171 West 60th Street.
New York, NY 10019
https://www.childrensmediaassociation.org/

*The street location is the north side of 60th Street between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues

Event Description:
The power and influence of gender representation remains a pressing issue in children’s media. While improvements are visible (witness more girls in lead roles in streaming series and featured in new programs on kids cable networks), challenges remain. Finding the right balance requires understanding — and a desire to help all children find themselves represented in media. Should our focus be on individual programs or individual games? Or should this be dealt with on a network-wide basis? And what about issues of gender fluidity and whether we should be focusing children on binary male/female choices at all? Join us for a deep dive into this topic and come away with a more nuanced understanding of the issues and new ways to think about these issues in your children’s media work.
