A Sampling of Dr. Robyn’s Most Popular Presentations
Media Masquerade: 10 Ways Media Impacts Girls, Body Image & Self Esteem
From the dolls girls play with to the ads they see and the shows they watch, media’s impact is far-reaching and all encompassing. Dr. Robyn Silverman discusses 10 detrimental types of messages media delivers to girls everyday. From ones of sexualization and objectification to those of body bullying, thinspiration and more girls are told repeatedly that they are not good enough the way they are unless they fit into a gender box where standards are often perfect, unhealthy and impossible to reach. Using illustrative images and video clips, the audience remains engaged, engrossed, and sometimes even shocked by what our girls must contend with from every medium—TV, internet, billboards, magazines, and more. Dr. Silverman lays out the problem, discusses with the audience what they “see” and what is “implied” by what they see and also offers tips and takeaways for all those who attend so that they can immediately make a change, make a difference, and make progress in their own lives and in the lives of girls.
“Dr. Robyn was amazing! Before the workshop officially started, she walked around and warmly welcomed each woman by shaking her hand and saying hello. I loved this…Dr. Robyn’s mix of personal anecdotes, eye-opening statistics, and disturbing images make the seminar funny, warm, emotional, and touching… Attending Dr. Robyn’s seminar empowered me to want to do even more. She empowered us to be the change we want for our girls, and instead of just leaving it at that, she gave us realistic steps we can take to counteract the negative and confusing messages presented to our girls on a daily basis. And I wasn’t the only one who was impressed. Our participants LOVED Dr. Robyn! They lined up in droves to buy her book, Good Girls Don’t Get Fat, have her sign it, and speak with her about their thoughts, opinions, and gratitude…I am working to collaborate with Dr. Robyn in the future!” –Meaghan Whitesides, Girl Scouts “Power of Popular” Conference, Rutgers University

Participants leave with specific hands-on strategies for creating respectful school communities and responsible leaders.
