Miss Representation

Join us for special screenings of this award-winning documentary that exposes how mainstream media contributes to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence. Miss Representation 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 or girl to feel powerful herself.

Post-screening discussion will be hosted by Women’s and Gender Studies faculty, Greg Hamill.

Refreshments will be served.

Presented by the Women’s and Gender Studies Program and North/Northwest Suburban NOW.
