Women of Vision, the Jewish Women’s Foundation of Greater Philadelphia, will host a private screening of the award-winning film Miss Representation on Monday, Nov. 12, at Gratz College, 7605 Old York Rd., Elkins Park.
This documentary by Jennifer Siebel Newsom exposes how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America.
The film interweaves stories from teenage girls with provocative interviews with experts, including Dr. Condoleezza Rice, Lisa Ling, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Rosario Dawson, Dr. Jackson Katz, Dr. Jean Kilbourne and Gloria Steinem to give an inside look at the media, its message and the impact of these portrayals on girls and women.
Wine and cheese reception begins at 6 p.m.; the film starts at 7 p.m., with discussion to follow.
RSVP by Nov. 6 online at: www.jewishphilly.org/wov or call Patricia Quarles at 215-832-0514.
