A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle
The Women’s Funding Alliance will be hosting a screening of Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s documentary, Miss Represenation, which “brings to light how mass media is teaching yet another generation that a woman’s primary value lay in her youth, beauty and sexuality—and not in her capacity as a leader, making it difficult for women to obtain leadership positions and for girls to reach their full potential. Director Jennifer Siebel Newsom takes a look at the media and its message through interviews with Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Gloria Steinem, and more.
