The Institute of International Education, through its Center for Women’s Leadership Initiative, is pleased to present a screening of Miss Representation in partnership with the Convent of the Sacred Heart High School. Miss Representation is a Jennifer Seibel Newsom documentary which explores the media’s portrayal of women in positions of power and influence in America.
Before the screening, three European panel participants from our International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) will discuss the film and how it relates to the status of women in their countries. The delegation includes women leaders from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Germany, Norway, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Spain, and Ukraine.
IVLP is the U.S. Department of State’s premier professional exchange program. Through IVLP, IIE is honored to bring over 1,000 emerging leaders from around the globe to the Bay Area each year.
