The evening is hosted by GenderHopes, Monaco-based association, which works to end gender-based violence and discrimination. Following the screening, there will be a panel and discussion.
Premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Miss Representation is written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom. The documentary 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.
