I just finished watching a very powerful documentary film on the OWN network titled Miss Representation. This film is written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, and premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
A synopsis from the site states, “the film exposes how mainstream media 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, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself.”
-the United States is 90th in the world for women in national legislatures
-women hold only 3% of clout positions in mainstream media
– 65% of women and girls have disordered eating behaviors.
You will see:
-and interviews with many teenage girls
Go to the site, view the trailer, and let me know what you think-
