Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, MISS REPRESENTATION uncovers the glaring reality of female representation we fail to see. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film exposes how mainstream media contribute to the underrepresentation of women in American positions of power. While women have made great strides in leadership over the past few decades, the United States is still ranked 90th in the world for women in national legislatures, women hold only 3% of clout positions in mainstream media, and 65% of women and girls have disordered eating behaviors. This film includes stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists and academics, like Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho, Rosario Dawson and Gloria Steinem, building momentum as MISS REPRESENTATION accumulates startling facts and statistics that will leave the audience shaken and armed with a new perspective.
