Miss Representation is a 2011 American documentary film written, directed, and produced by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, screening Thursday (Nov. 3) at 7 p.m. in Wilson Theatre. The film (watch the official trailer here) explores how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in influential positions by circulating limited and often disparaging portrayals of them.
