We’re less than two weeks away from our broadcast premiere on PBS! Girl Model will hit living rooms across the nation on March 24 at 10pm. Make sure you tune in–an consider hosting a premiere party! POV’s website has everything you need to screen and talk about this film with your friends, family, after school group, or students.
To gear up for the premiere, we’ll be joining the Women’s Media Center (@womensmediacntr) and the Model Alliance (@ModelAllianceNY) for a special edition of #sheparty, WMC’s weekly tweet-up. Join us on Twitter Wednesday March 20th from 3pm-5pm easter to #askagirlmodel about her experiences, and to chat with activists, models, educators, and lawyers about labor rights violations in the fashion industry. Just follow the #sheparty hashtag and tag your own posts to join the conversation!
Want to really help girl models? In partnership with the Model Alliance, we are launching a petition on March 20th to ask that child models get the same protection as child performers. Will you sign it and spread the word? Check out our website, Tumblr, Facebook, or Twitter for when we launch.
Also join us on March 14th for a screening of Girl Model at the Brooklyn Museum! The 7pm screening will be followed by a Q&A with working models, activists, and lawyers. Can’t make it? We’ll be covering the event live on @girlmodelmovie.
