Documentary Viewing of Miss Representation

Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Miss Interpretation 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.
