Movie Club
Mar 10 @ 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM

 

In honour of International Women’s Day, Movie Club will be discussing Miss Representation.

“Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, MISS REPRESENTATION uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film exposes how mainstream media contributes 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.

In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message that our young women and men overwhelmingly receive is that a woman’s value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader. While women have made great strides in leadership over the past few decades, the United States is still 90th in the world for women in national legislatures, women hold only 3% of clout positions in mainstream media, and 65% of women and girls have disordered eating behaviors. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize – Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival.” — excerpt courtesy of Kanopy.

Available on Kanopy  and DVD – ask at the circulation desk for the DVD copy.
