Miss Representation--a compelling and thought-provoking film written, directed and produced by Jennifer Siebel Newsom--"uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see," exposing "how mainstream media contribute to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence in America." Miss Representation Synopsis Featuring stories, insights and anecdotes from politicians, media stars and entertainers--female and male--mixed with statistics and images (some shocking), this documentary film made its debut at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
Jennifer Siebel Newsom will be present at a screening of her film on the Denton campus of TWU on Thursday, March 26, 2015 from 6 to 8 p.m. in CFO 203.
