Motherhood in Media

Today, Moms First and the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media released a first-of-its-kind report, Rewriting Motherhood: How TV Represents Moms and What We Want to See Next, developed with support from Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex and The Archewell Foundation.

The report closely examines cultural portrayals of motherhood in television and highlights how entertainment can further expand these depictions while also supporting mothers who work in the industry. By uplifting these diverse experiences, entertainment can positively impact our beliefs about motherhood and gender equity, as well as the systems needed to support motherhood in the workplace.

“My past experience as an actress, and now today as a producer and mother, have amplified my belief in the critical importance of supporting women and moms both behind the lens and in front of it. This report about the portrayal of mothers in entertainment highlights the gaps we need to fill to achieve true representation in the content we create and consume, and I’m honored to support this work through The Archewell Foundation,” said Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, Co-founder of The Archewell Foundation.
