A group of girls in a teen leadership program (www.gurlsrock.org) say that it is not sufficient to simply apologize for the offending messages on its products; JCPenney must do something affirmative to support development of respect for girls and development of self-esteem and confidence in girls. Girls of the G.U.R.L.S. Rock Leadership program want a JCPenney sweatshirt and line of products produced that fosters respect and self-esteem for girls and merchandise that they can wear and use to send messages to others that issue demeaning and disrespectful messages about girls. They want a design or products that say “Respect My Ability to Choose for Myself”, or, “I Am a Girl and I Am Smart, Confident, Capable, and Beautiful.”
