10/31/2013 – Miss Representation (12:30 pm – 2:00 pm) in the Library Events Area

A woman’s place is in the House, and the Senate. So why are so few of our elected leaders, and corporate leaders, women? Are there connections between sexualized advertising and the small number of women mayors? Do dangerously thin models affect the number of women in decision making positions in entertainment and the news? Miss Representation analyzes how media content and the structure of the media industry shape women’s political power and participation in the United States today.

Join Women’s Studies, Feminist Majority (newly formed student organization), and the Cunningham Memorial Library to examine the connection between the public representation of women and women’s civic roles and opportunities.
