The February Round Table:
Miss Representation at Athena Film Festival
As a Partner of the Athena Film Festival, BBPW invites you to a screening in lieu of our February
Roundtable, followed by a post screening discussion co-sponsored by The Paley Center for Media. Miss Representation explores how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in power by promoting limited and often disparaging portrayals of women. Writer/Director Jennifer Siebel Newsom interviews some of America’s most influential thought leaders in politics, news, entertainment, and academia to reveal what lies beneath the media’s messaging. Cast: Rosario Dawson, Jane Fonda, Molly Sims, Katie Couric, Daphne Zuniga, Catherine Hardwicke, Paul Haggis
