Seattle, WA • March 13, 2018
Join us for a special screening & dialogue of Miss Representation - a documentary on how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power & influence in America.

Seattle, WA 98104
How IS media influencing the way in which WE - and others around us - view and treat women pursuing positions of power and influence?
Join us and Roberta Romero for a screening and a discussion of Miss Representation as part of Ellevate Network's celebration of International Women's Day and Women's History Month!
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, producer & director Jennifer 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.
