On 4th OCTOBER 2014, EWF Calgary Screened Miss Representation, and hosted a Speakers’ Panel after the film, and live performances by Justine Tyrell and Celia Rose before the event. Stay tuned for screenings in other cities, and screenings of the male equivalent THE MASK YOU LIVE IN, in 2015.
Premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Miss Representation is written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom and exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation 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 to feel powerful herself. www.therepresentation.org/films
