Reviving Ophelia, based upon the book of the same name by Mary Pipher, explains the difficulties teenage girls face in today's media-driven society which pressures girls to be beautiful and cool, as opposed to being themselves. Pipher refers to the mass media's unhealthy influence on teenage women as "girl poisoning" and offers several possibilities for combatting it. The tape strives to enable parents and teenagers alike to form an identity based on real-life experiences, rather than television, film, and print symbols.
