COMO AMAR: How to Love
About This Collection
COMO AMAR: HOW TO LOVE: Follow the Los Angeles GlobalGirl Media reporters in this six-part webisode series as they explore local issues that relate to girls; reproductive rights and health.
Now more than ever women’s reproductive rights have been pushed to the forefront of national conversation and controversy. What do young women themselves have to say about these issues? GlobalGirl Media is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering high school age girls from under-served communities around the world through media, leadership and journalistic training to have a voice in the global media universe and their own futures. This past year, GGM worked with a group of young women in Los Angeles to produce an original webisode series, titled “COMO AMAR,” (HOW TO LOVE), helping them develop news literacy, digital production and critical thinking skills which will amplify their views and concerns about health and sexuality today.
This web series is presented by :
