Miss Representation Screening and Discussion on Wednesday
The documentary Miss Representation will be screened on Wednesday, Feb. 13, from 7:15 to 9 p.m. in Mali 2 auditorium (Dana Hall). The screening will be followed by a discussion and reflection activity.
The event is free and open to the public, and parking is available in lots J and H. Download a flyer about the Miss Representation screening and discussion.
Miss Representation examines how the media affects women, specifically with regard to their under-representation in positions of influence and power. The discussion afterwards will expand upon the documentary and question what steps we can take to improve women's representation.
The screening will be a shortened version of the documentary. The discussion and activity afterward will be moderated by representatives from The Ethel Walker School, the Women's Education and Leadership Fund (WELfund), and Women for Change.
This event is part of CT GirlCott, a movement of women willing to go makeup free for the month of March and give money they would usually spend on makeup to organizations that benefit women and girls. CT GirlCott also aims to raise awareness about body image and the relationship between women and makeup.
