Important Screening

The Womens Tree and La Tienda Present:

Miss Representation

Documentary Screening and Discussion 

Saturday, November 17, 2012

6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

The Performance Space at La Tienda

Facilitated audience discussion follows the film. 

Admission is free of charge. Donations are welcome.

Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the documentary Miss Representation 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.

In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message that our young women and men overwhelmingly receive is that a woman’s value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader. While women have made great strides in leadership over the past few decades, the United States is still 90th in the world for women.  Please join us in helping to educate the women of the next generation.
