Last week I urged all of you to vote for Kiri Davis’s short film “A Girl Like Me,” a finalist for CosmoGirl.com’s film contest. The winner will receive a $10,000 scholarship!
Voting ends tomorrow at noon! So please head on over and vote right now! And vote again tomorrow morning!
Last time I checked, Kiri was in second place with 9550 votes, which is about 400 votes less than the number one spot. I know we can band together and show her some support!
“A Girl Like Me” does an incredible job of showing just how deeply we are affected by European beauty ideals. Even young children aren’t immune, as she demonstrates in her black/white doll test. You might have seen me blog about it at Anti-Racist Parent a couple months back.
Thank you to Tayari for reminding me to post again about this. And thank you to all the other bloggers who have urged their readers to vote. So far that list includes:
The Chronicles of Munchkin Land
Family Living; Hatfield Style
this woman’s work
uplifting the cinematically tragic
a wrung sponge
No Snow Here
The Anti-Essentialist Conundrum
Writing is Fighting
The Life of a Ladybug
Our Kind of Parenting
If I’ve left you out, feel free to email me and I’ll add your blog to the list. And please post a reminder today, if you can!
