As part of her Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) project, Jordan Battle, a senior in the IB program at North Hall High School, has partnered with the Psychology Department to organize a screening of “Miss Representation,” a documentary about the misrepresentation of women in the media. The screening is from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 23, in Thurmond McRae Lecture Hall.
This event is a great opportunity for students to extend their learning outside of the classroom. The documentary encourages students to think critically about information and images in the media and may lead to thought-provoking discussions in the classroom.
In addition to the screening, there will be two female community leaders who will briefly speak about their expertise and experience surrounding women’s issues.
Seats are limited Please RSVP at http://evite.me/A7NcvUWyhT. The event is free, but donations to Gateway Domestic Violence Center are suggested and could include laundry detergent, toothpaste, toothbrushes and disinfecting wipes.
Warning: This documentary does not have a rating but contains some profanity and sexual content. The trailer is available at missrepresentation.org.
