Miss Representation Film Screening (Oct. 26)

 The next Pittsburgh screening and discussion of Miss Representation will take place Sunday, October 26, at 1:00 p.m. at the Kean Theatre, The Washington Place at St. Barnabas, in Gibsonia, PA.

The film will be followed by a facilitated interactive audience discussion led by Lee Ann Munger, PowerLink Director at Seton Hill University's E-Magnify. Lee Ann's passion for women's issues, and specifically women entrepreneurs, should guarantee a lively and thought-provoking discussion! 

Order tickets online here. (Early bird pricing available.)

Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media's limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful. Miss Representation includes stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists, and academics. Learn more about the film here.
