Movie Monday: Miss Representation

by Sarah Berry

A play on words, “Miss Representation,” focuses on the portrayal of women in mainstream media. Often, media representations of women focus on their appearances, versus their skills or personality.

In turn, “Miss Representation” presents a compelling argument, through numerous facts and statistics, as well as interviews with notable women in leaderships roles, such as Gloria Steinem, Condoleezza Rice, and Katie Couric, that the media’s portrayal of women has become a contributing factor to the small amount of women in leadership positions in the U.S.

“Miss Representation” is available now on Kanopy Streaming. If you are accessing Kanopy Streaming off-campus, view our blog post, Accessing Library Resources Off-Campus, for more information.
