Women take on the media in ‘Miss Representation’

On October 19, Saint Anthony Main Theater will screen a documentary titled “Miss Representation.” It’s a provocative and compelling look at how the media shapes the way women are viewed, and indeed, how they view themselves. Here’s the trailer:

  • Dear Marianne and Rachel,

    I wanted to let you know that The Advocates for Human Rights and The Friends of the St. Paul Public Library are also showing Miss Representation on November 9th at 7pm. The screening is being held at Metropolitan State University in the Founder’s Hall auditorium, and is part of our annual Women’s Human Rights Film Series. The screening is free and open to the public. There will also be a discussion held after the film.

    I hope you will promote our screening as another option for all of your readers and listeners. Feel free to email me at mobrien@advrights.org with any questions or go to http://www.theadvocatesforhumanrights.org.

    Thank you.
