The 2008-2009 season of Girls Making Media was comprised of five digital media “sessions” of nine hours each (spread over three three-hour segments). Teens researched and produced one video and one audio segment per session around specific women’s issue themes.

Segment topics were: Employment Rights for Teens, Resisting Teen Pregnancy, Pay Equity- Highlighting the passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, Body Image, and Self-Empowerment “I Believe in Me”.

This project was a collaboration between WomanKraft Art Center, and the Pima County/Tucson Women's Commission. Funding for this project was provided by the Every Voice in Action Foundation ®. Participants in the 2008-2009 season of classes were Maggie, Lupita, Shacely, Marisela, Angie, Amy, Clarissa, Paloma, Danielle, Gabriella, Ara, Flora, Taylor, Angel, Destiny, Amy, Amber, Desiree, Mary Lee, Nautica and Margaret.
