‘MissRepresentation’ film screening examines media and self image ... ‘you can’t be what you can’t see’


In observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Coalition will be hosting a special screening of the movie “MissRepresentation” at 7 p.m. April 12 at Nevada Union High School’s Don Baggett Theatre. The film explores how media furthers the limiting stereotypes of femininity and masculinity on men and women. This film is meant to inspire and empower community members to become engaged in efforts to influence positive change in the way gender is conceived and represented in our culture. The film asks girls and boys alike to think about the effects of the images they see — particularly the ways media affects women and girls’ ability to see themselves as leaders and be seen as leaders by others in society.
