I saw this posted on the GeekGirlCon website and since I’m totally in love with these ladies and their mission I thought I’d share with you guys. I’ll be there and hope you show up as well!
Miss Representation – Presented by Women’s Funding Alliance in partnership with Reel Grrls, GeekGirlCon, and SIFF. Join us on November 30th for a special screening of this compelling new film that exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America.
This 90-minute documentary identifies huge gaps in the mainstream media’s portrayals and depictions of women and how the limited images actually lead to fewer women in positions of influence and power in our society. Miss Representation is essential viewing for anyone bombarded with images and memes from mainstream media (ergo, that means everyone needs see this documentary).

Doors open at 6:00PM, show at 7:00 PM

All ages are welcome to this event, but please consider this film is rated TV-14 DL for strong suggestive dialogue and strong coarse language. Visit MissRepresentation.org for more details.
Stay after the film for a panel discussion on the images of women in the media: how it currently stands and how to change it.
Whether a veteran activist or young upstart, this screening of Miss Representation offers everyone inspiration to become an agent of change for images of women in the media. It is time to stand up and represent!
