Celebrate Women’s History Month: BAWIFM presents “Miss Representation”

Bay Area Women In Film & Media proudly presents screening of “Miss Representation”

 

March is International Women’s month and we are celebrating! BAWIFM and General Assembly are proud to present the screening of the documentary film “MISS REPRESENTATION” on March 30, 2015 at the new General Assembly San Francisco location.

Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America.

As seen on OWN network, Miss Representation includes stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists, and academics like Lisa Ling, Nancy Pelosi, Condoleezza Rice, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Rosario Dawson, Margaret Cho, Jackson Katz, Jean Kilbourne, and Gloria Steinem. The film offers startling facts and statistics to leave audiences shaken and armed with a new perspective.

In response to overwhelming public demand for ongoing education and social action in support of the film’s message, Newsom founded the organization that has become The Representation Project in April 2011.Using film as a catalyst for cultural transformation, The Representation Project inspires individuals and communities to challenge and overcome limiting stereotypes so that everyone, regardless of gender, race, class, age, sexual orientation or circumstance can fulfill their human potential.

Learn more about The Representation Project, including their second film, “The Mask You Live In” and guidance on how to join the movement, at http://therepresentationproject.org

**This is a CO-ED Event**
