Sister’s Social Event: Miss Representation

You are cordially invited to a campus-wide film screening! The film Miss Representation explores how the media’s misrepresentation of women has led to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence.  In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message that our young women and men overwhelmingly receive is that a woman’s value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader.  This film has received critical acclaim from the Sundance Film Festival and has received high praise from more than 6 other film festivals.  To view the extended trailer for Miss Representation click here.

The film screening will be hosted on November 29th from 5:15pm to 8:00pm at the BU Medical Campus in Keefer Auditorium.

The event schedule is as follows:

5.15pm-5.30pm: Welcome Remarks and Film Introduction

5.30pm-6.55pm: Full Screening of Miss Representation
