  • Beyond Disability: The FeFe Stories

    Beyond Disability: The FeFe Stories

    The Empowered Fe Fes (slang for female), a group of young women with disabilities, hit the streets of Chicago on a quest to discover the difference between how they see themselves and how others see them. Their revelations are humorous, thought provoking and surprising. As the young women grapple with issues as diverse as access, education, employment, sexuality and growing up with disabilities, they address their audience with a sense of urgency, as if to say, “I need to tell you so you’ll see me differently.” See http://beyondmedia.org for more information.

  • Chain of Change Trailer

    Chain of Change Trailer

    In 2008, the Chain of Change project organized over 25 groups of youth activists across the state of Illinois to individually and collectively strategize how to end violence against women and girls. Giving these groups access to flip video cameras, Beyondmedia challenged the groups to think about their own roles in this struggle and to create short video segments to be uploaded to this website.

    The website subsequently serves as a platform to facilitate discussion around the topics and issues the videos address and serves to strengthen the bonds between the participants and to raise awareness of violence against women and girls, in all its complexity.

  • Girls’ Theory: Me-Search Research

    Girls’ Theory: Me-Search Research

    Beyondmedia’s Girl World Media Workshop was a year-long after-school program with Alternatives that began in 2001. Alternatives provides innovative leadership and advocacy opportunities to lower-income girls and young women on the north side of Chicago. Beyondmedia collaborated with 19 girls, aged 14-17, in the Girl World Teen Group to produce a video, “Girls’ Theory, Me-search Research”.

    In their own voices, the girls cover topics such as violence, stereotypes of women, sex, relationships, reputation, and the future. The young women critically examined representations of teenagers and women of color in mainstream media and took to the streets to interview the public about the subject. As a result, their smart, hip video merges personal discussions about the daily struggle to be a righteous sister with the mixed blessings of the world at large.

It also asks the questions: “What do these kinds of portrayals mean for young women?”, “How do they affect our lives, our decisions and our relationships?” and “What can we do to change them?” See https://beyondmedia.org for more information.
