As part of Women’s History Month, the psychology department at Brenau is hosting a showing of the documentary Miss Representation. This documentary “explores how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in influential positions in America and challenges the media’s limiting and often disparaging portrayals of women, which make it difficult for the average girl to see herself as powerful.” The documentary includes commentary from a number of very influential women such as Condoleezza Rice, Geena Davis, Gloria Steinem, Katie Couric, Lisa Ling, and Nancy Pelosi. 

The showing takes place in Brenau’s Thurmond McRae Auditorium on Tuesday, March 12, 2013 from 12:30 p.m. – 2 p.m

The documentary runs for 90 minutes, so there will no time for a panel discussion after the viewing, but psychology faculty will be available afterwards to talk to anyone interested in staying longer.

The event is open to students, faculty, staff, and administrators at Brenau as well as to the general public. There is no cost to the event and no RSVP is needed.
