From “Thelma and Louise” to “The Accidental Tourist,” Geena Davis is probably best known as an Academy Award-winning actress. But her work off the screen is even more impressive. A member of Mensa, she founded the non-profit Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. She works with film and television creators to reduce gender stereotyping and increase the number of female characters in media targeted for children 11 and under. Hear from Davis how media plays a key role in children’s development, and how her organization is making a difference.
