Miss Representation Film Screening | PBL Ohio Institute

July 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


In the documentary¬†Miss Representation, Jennifer Newsom exposes the bold reality of western culture and our continuous idea that a woman’s ability to hold positions of power and influence in society is being overlooked by her sexuality and beauty. The movie challenges how mainstream media’s sexism plays a pivotal role in a woman’s ability to attain a leadership role in a society where the media is the most convincing force shaping norms. The message is clear: a woman’s power lies in her youth, physical attractiveness, her sexuality, and not in her capability as a front-runner. Over the past 20 years, women in the United States have come a long way. but America is still ranked 90th in the world for national legislatures. There is currently only about three percent of women in the mainstream media that are in powerful positions, while a staggering 3 out of 4 American women and young girls have eating disorders. Watch as this documentary builds momentum with an array of inspirational stories and interviews with leading academics, journalists, entertainers, and activists.
