Miss Representation

Miss Representation is a film that has sparked a movement "that seeks to empower women and girls to challenge limiting media labels in order to realize their potential."

Women's portrayal in the media is a powerful tool that perpetuates sexism, and Miss Representation explores this concept through discussions with young women, powerful females, and celebrities. It provokes critical thinking about the images we are bombarded with and offers solutions to breaking this cultural habit of focusing on women's bodies instead of their minds.
