It’s Time To Represent the Real Me
Miss Representation is the award-winning documentary film that exposes how mainstream media contributes to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman or girl to feel powerful herself.
MissRepresentation.org is a non-profit social action campaign and media organization established to shift people’s consciousness, inspire individual and community action, and ultimately transform culture so everyone, regardless of gender, age or circumstance can fulfill their potential.
How We Are Making A Difference Together
- Using social media, women and girls are speaking out, telling their stories and influencing change. Men and boys are standing up to sexism, countering hyper-masculinity and championing women as leaders.
- Schools are using the Miss Representation‘s Curriculum to educate youth around media literacy and to inspire and activate students to make change.
- Communities are hosting screenings and discussions to shift the cultural mindset around gender and end sexism.
- Consumers are using their power to celebrate positive media and advertising, and challenge negative media and advertising.
