Miss Representation

Directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film explores how the media’s misrepresentations of women have led to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence. Stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists and academics, like Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho, Rosario Dawson and Gloria Steinem build momentum as Miss Representation accumulates startling facts and statistics. Premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
