Miss Representation (2011) (90 min) Written, directed and produced byJennifer Siebel Newsom. Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself.
