District Chronicle Metro Brief: Campaign against media stereotypes and gender-based violence launches on Jan. 20


Originally published January 18, 2015

A campaign to combat the impact of stereotypical representations of women of color in the media and help curtail gender-based violence will open at Howard University on Tuesday, Jan. 20, when the Redefining HERstory program kicks off.

The initiative will be launched at the College of Medicine Auditorium, Room B5, from 5 p.m.-6:30 p.m.  It is sponsored by Truth in Reality, a media advocacy organization whose goal is to combat the negative effects of stereotypical representations of women of color in media, especially on violent reality shows. The Redefining HERstory Campus Social Action Program is part of a larger Redefining HERstory Public Awareness Movement that will continue to run after the Campus Program concludes at Howard in March, during Women’s History Month.
