It's a Girl Thing (58 Min)

Framed by the structure of a faux interactive website for tween girls, "It's a Girl Thing" speaks with consumer critics, tween brand marketers, girls, moms, and educators to explore the seemingly benign cultural universe of candy-coated, pastel-colored, hyper-commercialized girl culture (and the tween queen phenomenon) to reveal the complex and contradictory messages directed at today's young girls.
