Maria O. Alvarez, the Hispanic media consultant at Common Sense Media, a non-profit organization that studies the effects that media and technology have on young users, believes the lack of colored girls in youth media leads to low self-esteem among minorities.
"We do know that all these messages have a direct impact in all their behaviors and how they see the world," said Alvarez. The halfhearted gesture to include a single leading Black, Latina and Asian cartoon character, according to Alvarez, sends the message that although several little white girls can be pop stars (Olivia from "Olivia"), mechanics (Widget from "Wow Wow Wubbzy") and mathematicians (Milli from "Team Umizoomi"), there's only room for one visionary girl of color. And it has an impact on how we see ourselves and how proactive we are," said Alvarez. "We all have great value to share with the society; we can all be in powerful positions. It's hard to believe that when the media doesn't show you like that. But if together, parents and community, can share those messages with kids, that's going to help." Alvarez believes that young girls need role models outside of the media. "There's a huge gap in reality and what they see in the media. We need to help them see that what they see in the media is not reality." Here are a few tips for young girls from Alvarez and Common Sense Media to help with self-image: Filed Under: Teens, TV & MoviesTagged With: animated cartoons, cartoons, common sense media, Doc McStuffins, dora, dora the explorer, Hugh Klein, Kai-Lan, Kristen Harrison, Maria O.
