"Miss-Representation" - Movie Screening

Thursday, January 31, 2013 • 6:15 PM • Law School 4047Duke Law Events

"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. The trailer is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gkIiV6konY. Join WLSA for food and a screening of "Miss Representation."
