Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media contribute to women being under-represented in positions of power and influence in America. The collective message our young women and men overwhelmingly receive is that a woman’s value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality — not in her capacity as a leader. An impressive array of women share their own experiences with sexualization, among them feminist icons like Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda, and politicians like Condoleezza Rice and Nancy Pelosi. Miss Representation brings to life startling facts and statistics that leaves audiences shaken and armed with a new perspective.
