Miss Representation Screening

January 25, 1pm at Ali Cohen’s house

It is an OWN and Documentary Film Club selection and was shown at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011. The quote from the film website says

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. Directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film explores how mainstream media contribute to  the under-representation of women in influential positions in America and challenges the media’s limiting and often disparaging portrayals of women, which make it difficult for the average girl to see herself as powerful.”
