Miss Representation

Video

This is a preview of a very powerful documentary that challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls all across America. This film exposes how mainstream media contributes to the misrepresentation of women and impacts their standing in social and professional settings. Where media is the most persuasive force in shaping cultural norms the collective message overwhelmingly received by young men and women is that a woman’s value and power rest in her youth, beauty, and her sexuality, not in her capabilities or her capacity to be a prominent upstanding professional figure or leader.
