present a Film Screening of
Miss Representation

This film offers an inside look at the media and its message through provocative interviews with well-known figures such as Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Gloria Steinem, and Condoleezza Rice, as well as personal stories from teenage girls. By promoting the idea that women’s primary value lies in beauty and sexuality, the media makes it difficult for women to obtain leadership positions and for girls to reach their full potential. Striking illustrations of advertising images indelibly drive the point home.

Doors open at 5:00. Film starts at 5:15. Discussion in small groups will follow the film screening. We will finish at 7:15 (before dark).

Everyone is Welcome!! We hope to see you there!
