Phenomenally U: 3 Candid Conversations for FATHERS and Teen Daughters in the Reality TV ERA. Sex, Self-respect and Success.
Saturday, June 30, 2012 from 12:30 PM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
Phenomenally U was conceptualized by Lacey C. Clark!, filmmaker, life coach, lecturer, and author, in 2012 in response to the proliferation of damaging, demoralizing and destructive images of women depicted on network and cable television programs. This event was designed as a series of daylong activities and interactive discussions led by renowned activists, educators, authors, industry experts and parents. The goal is to enlighten and inspire teen girls and young women between the ages of 14 and 24, their fathers, uncles and other aspiring leaders to:
- Recognize and repudiate negative media images
- Embrace and replicate principles of self-love and self-respect
- Provide tools and resources for their holistic development
- Expose and encourage images of success
- Identify risk behaviors to eliminate incidences of domestic violence, dating violence, and intimate partner abuse whether it’s emotional, psychological, physical, sexual or financial.
