Dialogue & Discussion Series: Women & Media

The Women's Leadership Initiative, part of the Office of Student Leadership and Community Engagement, is sponsoring a screening of the documentary Miss Representation.

Jennifer Siebel Newsom's documentary premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and aired on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. The film explores how the media’s misrepresentations of women have led to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence.

The screening will be followed by a facilitated discussion.
