Rockland Rising! Film Screening of Miss Representation

United States > West Nyack > palisades center > 2014-02-13 > 06:30

About The Event

Film Screening of award winning documentary Miss Representation. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film 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. February 13, 2014 6:30pm - 8:30pm AMC Theatres @ the Palisades Mall Suggested donation $10 ($5 for students) For more information: contact Laura @845-634-3344
