Movie presentation: ‘Miss Representation’
Associated with the week of climate : CHANGE events, ‘Miss Representation' will be shown. It is part of a festival of films dealing with social and environmental issues. All films were produced by University Trustee Sarah Johnson Redlich.
From the ‘Miss Representation' website:
"Miss Representation brings together some of America's most influential women in politics, news, and entertainment to give us an inside look at the media's message. Miss Representation explores women's under-representation in positions of power by challenging the limited and often disparaging portrayal of women in the media. As one of the most persuasive and pervasive forces in our culture, media is educating yet another generation that women's primary value lies in their youth, beauty and sexuality-not in their capacity as leaders. Through the riveting perspectives of youth and the critical analysis of top scholars, Miss Representation will change the way you see media."
The event is being supported by a grant from the Mellon Foundation.
