RHG Film & Discussion Series: "Miss Representation"

Time: 7:00 PM-9:00 PM

Location: CME

This evening Miss Representation will be screened and serve as the basis for personal reflection and dialogue: “Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, Miss Representation uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself.”
