Miss Representation

Miss RepresentationIt's time for all of us to consider how we are individually and collectively hindering the achievement of young girls and women. Miss Representation shows how mainstream media outlets contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media's limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, making it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions.

Miss Representation includes stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists and academics. It offers startling facts and statistics that will leave audiences shaken and armed with a new perspective.

Panelists include: Rhonda English, My Sister's Place; Lorna Hanley, Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women; Byron Hurt, award-winning filmmaker and anti-sexist activist; Molly McGrath Tierney, Baltimore City Dept. of Social Services; Paula Monopoli, University of Maryland School of Law, Women, Leadership, and Equality Program; Caprice Martin Smith, SharperMinds Consultants; Dr. Mary Washington, Maryland House of Delegates, 43rd District. Moderator: April Yvonne Garrett, Civic Frame.
