DAY 225: MISS REPRESENTATION
Tonight I went to an event where a women owned law firm showed the documentary Miss Representation. The film The film explores how the media’s misrepresentations of women have led to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence. Wow, is all I have to say. It's really bad out there. Really bad. And that's just in the media. Those portrayals of women find their way into every day life and hurt tons of women and girls. I know this sounds like a commercial but I truly encourage everyone to watch Miss Representation and find what they can do to challenge limiting labels.
