This acclaimed documentary, Official 2011 Sundance Selection, shows how women are misrepresented by the media and its negative effects on society's perception of women. The ramifications extend to girls' self-esteem, boys' perception of girls and likewise how this has resulted in the lack of women holding positions of power.
A Big Thanks to Our Sponsors.
