Watch What You Watch PSA

On Wednesday, October 6, Girl Scouts of the USA, Academy Award-winning actor Geena Davis, and other leaders from the entertainment, policy, business, and youth-serving communities joined forces to examine one of the Girl Scout federal/state agenda issues- media literacy and healthy images of girls and women- at the 2010 Healthy Media for Youth Summit in Washington, DC, where a new Public Service Announcement (PSA) Watch What You Watch was first unveiled.  

The campaign is created in partnership with Girl Scouts of the USA, The Creative Coalition, National Cable & Telecommunications Association, and the National Association of Broadcasters. Watch What You Watch encourages all of us to pay attention to the media images that are influencing the nation’s youth.

The PSA, directed by actor and Co-President of The Creative Coalition Tim Daly, features actors Felicity Huffman, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Andrea Bowen, Seth Green, Rachael Leigh Cook, Kaycee Stroh, Kathryn Joosten, Carrie Ann Inaba, Teri Polo, Shay Mitchell, Ayla Kell, Josie Loren, Vanessa Lengies, Rachel Blanchard, Brooke Nevin, Lisa Gay Hamilton, and recording artist Chuck D.

Love it! This is such a cool PSA. Every teen girl should see this and think about it.
