Using film as a catalyst for cultural transformation, The Representation Project inspires individuals and communities to challenge and overcome limiting stereotypes so that everyone, regardless of gender, race, class, age, sexual, orientation, or circumstance can fulfill their human potential.

PCA is pleased to present you with The Representation Project's Student Athlete Conversation Starters. These tools are designed to allow student-athletes to consider the ways mainstream media shapes their beliefs girls and women. We hope to empower student athletes to engage in conversations about ways that media informs your self-concepts. We encourage you to participate in both discussions and hands-on activities that explore the harmful stereotyping that limits possibilities available for girls and women.

We hope that by using these activities you will spark conversations that bring about real dialogue and introspection.
