Women and Gender Studies Film: "Miss Representation"
|Date:||Wednesday, March 28, 2012|
|Location:||F.W. Olin Building—Room 102|
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. 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.
