Hollywood fails us all by not representing the full spectrum of humanity. To hold them accountable, we’re proud to offer #TheRepTest, which grades overall representation in film, television, and video games and encouraging more diversity in the entertainment industry. For specific quizzes on how media portrays women check out the #MissRepTest, LGBT characters check out the #PrideTest, and men check out the #BeyondTheMask test. Together, we’re challenging stereotypes in our media and beyond!
Be A Youth Rep
The Be A Youth Rep Program is for high school and college-age students who are committed to ending limiting stereotypes and social injustices. As a Youth Rep, yourvoice will be amplified and elevated as you participate in campaigns such as #BuildConfidence, #AskHerMore, and #NotBuyingIt. You’ll also serve as a peer ambassador, hosting a screening of one of The Representation Project’s films and spreading the films’ messages throughout your campus.
