Miss Representation airs Sunday, December 9 at 2/1c only on OWN
Posted: Mon 12/03/2012 11:16 AM
Jennifer Siebel Newsom is the writer, producer and director of the OWN Documentary Club film, Miss Representation.
Miss Representation brings together some of America's most influential women in politics, news and entertainment, including Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho, Rosario Dawson and Gloria Steinem to give audiences an inside look at the media's message and depiction of women. The film explores women's under-representation in positions of power by challenging their limited and often disparaging portrayals in the media. Miss Representation takes the stand that the media is portraying women's primary values as their youth, beauty and sexuality - rather than their capacity as leaders.
Tune in Sunday, December 9 at 2/1c for a special encore presentation of Miss Representation.
