When girls in children’s movies are continuously relegated to supporting roles, both genders learn early on that girls are less important than boys. Is this the message we want to send to our kids when they turn on the TV, go to a movie, see a commercial, or buy a toy?
I’ve updated the Reel Girl’s Gallery of Girls Gone Missing From Kids Films in 2011 to include posters of movies not yet released when I originally put up the Gallery in July. The Gallery includes movies ‘appropriate’ for young kids. My three daughters are ages 2 – 8.
You can see the updated Gallery here.
