Sundance 2011 Accepts Miss Representation, Film on Media’s Distortion of Women, with Power & in Politics by Jennifer Siebel Newsom
Based on the notoriously sexist way in which the media portray women, and spurred on by the roles of Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin in the 2008 election, the film “Miss Representation” is coming.
Writer/Director Jennifer Siebel Newsom brings together some of America’s most influential women in politics, news, and entertainment to give us an inside look at the media’s message. Miss Representation explores women’s under-representation in positions of power by challenging the limited and often disparaging portrayal of women in the media. As one of the most persuasive and pervasive forces in our culture, media is educating yet another generation that women’s primary value lies in their youth, beauty and sexuality—not in their capacity as leaders. Through the riveting perspectives of youth and the critical analysis of top scholars, Miss Representation will change the way you see media.
If you’re not interested in this film, then you’re not remotely interested in our future – especially not the future of your daughter, your wife, your sister, or the women responsible for giving birth to you.
