Off the Close: Film “Miss Representation”

On March 27th, Grace Church in NYC showing of the Documentary Film, Miss Representation. The screening will take place on March 27th at 6:15 pm in the church’s Tuttle Hall (Broadway between 10th and 11th Streets).  The screening will be followed by a discussion time and light refreshments.
Miss Representation is written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom and 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 herself.
