Miss Representation premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and aired on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. The film explores how the media’s misrepresentations of women and girls have led to the under representation of women in positions of power and influence. The film will be introduced by M-A journalism teacher Betsy Snow and students Anna de Benedictis and Helmi Henkin.
