She Can’t Control Herself Synopsis
Four girls navigating the teenage experience of hypersexualization, in the media, at school, and at home.
Hypersexualization of women and girls is a common phenomenon in media, at home, and in school. Because it is something unavoidable, young girls and boys alike grow up with false beliefs and expectations on how women and girls should be treated, how they should act, and how they should dress.
By educating our audience about the hypersexualization of girls — using first-hand testimonials and statistics — our film aims to inform and to start conversations with people about this problem.
Our goal is to raise awareness among girls about the issues of hypersexualization and double standards that have gone unaddressed for far too long. We hope that our audience will feel empowered and inspired to go out into their own environments and call out these injustices — whether at school, in the media, at home, and elsewhere.
There is power in numbers! Reaching more women about this issue will spark important conversations and enable us to work together to bring an end to the toxicity of hypersexualization and double standards.
