The Sociology Department is cosponsoring a screening of the award-winning documentary, MISS REPRESENTATION.
Directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film explores how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in influential positions in America and challenges the media’s limiting and often disparaging portrayals of women, which make it difficult for the average girl to see herself as powerful.  Visit the Center for Women in Law website for more information about the movie.

When: October 19, 2011 - 6:00 PM*
