The showing of the documentary was presented by the Scattergood Friends School. Administrators there say films like these can help kids decides where to look for better direction in their lives.

"Young women, young boys, men and women will really care to examine how we are portraying women and girls today in the media and to question, are these the role types of mentoring that we want for our young people today," Christine Ashley said.

The Englert agreed to show the documentary for just a donation, because are can motivate positive social change.
