Miss Representation Film Screen & Panel Discussion By Jennifer Siebel Newsom
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. 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.
