Description

This film developed from a conference attended by women between 15 & 19 years of age who gathered to share their concerns on issues such as racism, self-esteem, education, feminism and sexism. Three main issues are covered in the film: body image and self esteem, racism and prejudice, sexism and the "superwoman". The film is useful as a discussion starter for young men and women interested in how the world shapes them and makes them who they are. National Film Board (NFB).
