Maybe change starts with plays like this.

Girls Like That by Evan Placey
A naked photo of Scarlett goes viral. Rumours spread across smart phones like wildfire and her reputation becomes toxic, threatening to shatter the fragile unity of the girls she has grown up with. But how long can Scarlett remain silent? And why isn’t it the same for boys?
Girls Like That is an urgent and explosive play that explores gender equality and the pressures on today’s digital generation.
Girls Like That by Evan Placey and directed by Esther Baker, was performed by a company of professional and ex-prisoner actors and toured across London schools and prisons in October and the Unicorn Theatre in November 2014, reaching audiences of over 5000 (4300 young people). Over 350 young people took part in accompanying workshops.
The play won Best Play for Young Audiences at the Writers Guild Award 2015.
