WET's RISK TAKERS FILM SERIES , WET's EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM:
WET's Risk Takers Film Series uses film as a launching pad for discussion to teach girls how to look at the media with a critical eye, and to distinguish empowering risks from damaging risks. The program is designed to bolster girls' self-esteem, and provide them with communication and leadership tools to support their dreams and give them the steps needed to make their dreams come true. Now in its fifth year, WET's Risk Takers is helping hundreds of New York City teenage girls address and investigate issues of peer pressure, body image, eating disorders, sexuality, drugs, alcohol, racism, sexism, harassment, teen pregnancy, safe sex and more. An exciting component of the program is the participation of the celebrated female guest artists who are emblematic female Risk Takers in the media. Guest artists include: Frances McDormand, Mary-Louise Parker, Kerry Washington, Olympia Dukakis, Audra McDonald, to name just a few. Kelly McGillis (The Accused), Alison Lohman (White Oleander), Lili Taylor (Girlstown), and Nikki Blonsky (Hairspray) participated in the 2008 program.
