Miss Representation

"As a culture, women are brought up to be fundamentally insecure," says Lisa Ling, one of many pivotal and vocal contributors to the film Miss Representation.

Teenagers average 10 hours and 45 minutes of media consumption (television, music, movies, magazines, on-line) every day.

"People learn more from media than from any other single source of information. If we want to understand what's going on in our society in the 21st century, we have to understand media."

We need to see this movie.
We need to spread this message.
I truly believe that our future depends on conversations about this.

Check out the website and the trailer here.

There are not currently any screenings scheduled to take place in Nebraska or anytime soon in Colorado. I'm considering looking into hosting a screening.
