WFC Steering Committee member Meta Newhouse recently watched a documentary film called Miss Representation by Jennifer Siebel Newsom. The film explores how the media’s misrepresentations of women have led to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence. It was pretty terrific, and as an official Sundance entry, is getting lots of press right now.
Meta tells us, "The amazing news is that Jennifer will be coming to MSU next semester (March 20th) as part of the President's Fine Arts Series. Kate Jo, our gallery director, has played a large role in getting her to visit."
The screening has been set for Wednesday night at the Ellen Theatre, followed by a panel discussion. The WFC is exploring programming around Jennifer's visit. We'll keep you posted!
