Miss Representation Film & Discussion | Simple Salads


Film & Discussion: Miss Representation
A must see for women & men! This movie provides an excellent overview of how women in the United States are portrayed in the media and the impact this has on society. There are a number of scenarios presented about women’s lives — the challenges and struggles they have had to deal with as well as the many challenges that young girls face every day. Join an impressive array of personalities, activists, politicos and entertainment figures who share many diverse viewpoints, all striving for that same elusive result of enlightenment. This film is great for women, men and teens and will have a definite impact on how you view the media in the future. Dinner will be provided!
