The representation of women in media is an important issue for our times. To kick off in 2012 we’re screening a film to get us thinking, talking, and acting on the issue of women and how we are portrayed in the media.
Join us on 29 February 2012 in Sydney for a screening of the film and a panel discussion following the film.
The documentary Miss Representation, by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, and aired on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network in October.
The film explores how the media’s misrepresentations of women have led to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence.
