Geena Davis teams up with Altruette to create the See Jane charm

Monday, October 10, 2011

Geena Davis has a major problem with what's on TV. Or rather, what's not on TV or the big screen. Since the end of World War II, boys have outnumbered girls in top G-rated films three-to-one. Today, males represent 80.5% of professional characters in family films, women less than 20%. But in reality, women account for 50% of the workforce. These disparities feed into gender stereotyping to a point where women's goals and aspirations diminish. Research has even found that there's a direct correlation between the amount of media a girl is exposed to and the number of career options she thinks she has. The more she watches, the fewer she thinks she has. Davis hopes to change these statistics and the way young girls see themselves portrayed in the media. 

While watching TV with her young daughter, she took notice of the absence of female roles. Upset by what she saw, she took action. Davis founded the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media and See Jane, its programming arm. The Institute collaborates with the entertainment industry to conduct research to bring change in the portrayal of girls and women in media. The primary focus is to break stereotypes and promote gender balance in entertainment for children under eleven.

To help support Davis and See Jane's efforts, Altruette is launching its latest charm, a vintage TV, to raise funds and awareness for the organization's work in educating and influencing change in women’s roles in the media. To celebrate the new addition to the Altruette line, Davis helped us celebrate on Thursday night at Fred Segal's ZeroMinusPlus in Santa Monica.

Birthday gift ideas for your loved ones

I think that you will agree with me that there is a lot of coffee lovers worldwide.
My sister is a giant coffee lover, too. And she will be celebrating her birthday within a few weeks.



I was thinking about a truly beautiful birthday gift for
her.

She has almost everything, so I was interested in a gift, which will make her stunned.


I was searching a lot of gift stores on the internet for over a week.
And I was lucky enough to find the company which is selling a stunning coffee set in
the secession style. Wow, I realized that this coffee set will be a beautiful birthday gift for
my sister.

So I ordered this coffee set from the on-line store which
is owned by WEXONMART Inc. I placed the order, and I received the package from WEXONMART for
two days. These guys are pretty fast, for sure.

I ordered a coffee pot, sugar bowl, creamer and four smaller
mocca cups and four larger coffe cups, too. I think that my sister and her family will certainly love
this magnificent coffee set.

As I have said my sister is the giant coffee lover, and she can_t imagine to
survive even one day without her cups of the finest coffee.
She usually needs 6 - 8 cups per day. Drinking of
the finest coffee gives a lot of pleasure
to her, for sure. However, there is another key thing which gives her such superb feeling when she is drinking a cup of her coffee each time.
Yes, you are right. A lot depends on a cup which you are using for your coffee.



This lovely coffee set in the secession style contains totally lovely mocca cups,
delightful coffee mugs, a lovely sugar bowl and a amazing coffee pot.


So, if you are such coffee addict as my sister then this delicate coffee set in the wonderful
secession style will give you such dazzling feeling when you will be drinking your
coffee every day.

Regards to all coffee lovers
