Where: Frick Fine Arts Building

Time: 6:00 – 9:00 PM

This film is a must see for everyone.  Men – bring your wife, sisters, mom – & especially daughters and sons.

Miss Representation is the award-winning documentary film that exposes how mainstream media contributes to the underrepresentation 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 or girl to feel powerful herself.
