The Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women will kick off its Fall Women’s Lecture and Film Series with a free showing of “Miss Representation” Thursday, Sept. 12, at 5:30 p.m. in Nitschke Hall Auditorium.
“Any opportunity that we can reflect on images that influence others, positively or negatively, is an opportunity we need to take,” said Dr. Shanda Gore, associate vice president for equity, diversity and community engagement. “‘Miss Representation’ and the following panel discussion will continue conversations on how women are depicted in the media.”
Created, directed and released in 2011 at Sundance by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, “Miss Representation” is a documentary-style film that features interviews from some of America’s most prominent female leaders. The interviews provide an inside look at the media and its messages about women.
