Join us as we celebrate Ellevate Charlotte’s third anniversary and recognize the importance of International Women's Day and Women's History Month, with a screening of Miss Representation.
We will enjoy networking, the screening, and a panel discussion afterwards. Your registration includes a beverage and heavy appetizers.
Miss Representation includes stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists, and academics like Lisa Ling, Nancy Pelosi, Condoleezza Rice, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Rosario Dawson, Jackson Katz, Jean Kilbourne, and Gloria Steinem. The film offers startling facts and statistics to leave audiences shaken and armed with a new perspective.
In response to overwhelming public demand for ongoing education and social action in support of the film’s message, Newsom founded the organization that has become The Representation Project in April 2011. Using film as a catalyst for cultural transformation, The Representation Project inspires individuals and communities to challenge and overcome limiting stereotypes so that everyone, regardless of gender, race, class, age, sexual orientation or circumstance can fulfill their human potential.

**Please note this film includes some mature language and images**
Following the screening, we'll have an all star media panel discussion with Kim Brattain of Kim Brattain Media and Molly Grantham who anchors WBTV’s 5:30pm and 11pm newscasts! These ladies will break down what really goes on in the media!
