April 4 at 4:30 PM come to Frist 302 for a screening of Miss Representation.Miss Representation is a film about how objectification of women in the mainstream media makes it difficult for women to achieve significant positions of power and leadership positions within government and business. Objectification and the over-sexualization of women leads to women exhibiting lower confidence levels which reduces the chances that they will compete in political campaigns or lead organizations. The lack of female leadership is also evident at Princeton where women rarely lead student groups, as shown by the findings by the Steering Committee on Undergraduate Women’s Leadership.
Discussion groups will follow the film screening & delicious refreshments from Bent Spoon will be served (cookies & hot chocolate!)
Co-sponsored by PWiCS, Equal Writes, Princeton Film Society, and the GSS Department.
