Miss Representation at Texas Woman’s University
Thursday, March 26th, at 6:00 p.m. CFO 203
Film Screening: Miss Representation w/ Director Ms. Jennifer Siebel Newsom
Miss Representation reveals the betrayal of women in the media. The film demonstrates how society is misguided by media content, which generally highlights the mere physical attributes and nurturing abilities of women, but limits recognition of their intellectual capabilities. The film also uncovers how successful women in various careers are still deprived of respect and recognition for their achievements in comparison to the male gender. Miss Representation will leave the audience thinking of the many opportunities our world could be deprived of if women’s endeavors continue to go unsupported or underrepresented.
Join our guest speaker; film Director, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, as she discusses Miss Representation and its efforts to raise awareness about stamping out inequality and discrimination. The event is sponsored by Commuter Services and Lasso 100th in celebration of Women in the Media and International Women’s Day.
