MISS REPRESENTATION

SPECIAL EVENT! Jan 26th: panel discussion on feminism, anti-racism, politics and popular culture.

 ON JAN. 26TH ONLY THERE WILL BE A DISCUSSION WITH PANELISTS DR. JO-ANNE LEE, DR. KAREN HURLEY, SANDY MAYZELL, AND NIKKI SANCHEZ. With a 256-billion-dollar advertising industry as its main opponent, Miss Representation wants to challenge the representation of women in modern American culture. According to the documentary, the media's foremost message is that a woman's value is to be measured by her youth and beauty, making it difficult for young girls to reach their full potential and women to reach positions of power. The consequences are becoming noticeable: The US currently ranks 90th in the world in electing or appointing women to government roles. Actress-turned-director Jennifer Siebel Newsom put together an impressive array of women to share their experiences with sexualization, among them, feminist icons Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda, and politicians like Condoleezza Rice and Nancy Pelosi. Miss Representation doesn't shy away from the role women themselves play in this phenomenon, nor the media's double standard when dealing with female politicians.—Vancouver International Film Festival
