Film and Panel Discussion: "Miss Representation"

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 12:00 pm

The Political Science Society will host the documentary "Miss Representation," followed by a discussion and Q&A with representatives of the Iowa organization 50-50 in 2020.

"Miss Representation" strives to expose how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation and misrepresentation of women in positions of power in America. The film includes interviews with Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Rachel Maddow and many others to give an inside look at the media and its effect on portrayals of women.

Following the film, there will be a discussion and Q&A with representatives of the Iowa nonprofit organization 50-50 in 2020, which aims to achieve political equity for Iowa women by recruiting, training and mentoring women. Panelists include Joy Corning, former Iowa state senator and lieutenant governor; Chris Larimer, associate professor of political science; and Allison Martens, assistant professor of political science.
