Miss Representation Screening

September 09, 2014

Elk Grove United Methodist Church invites the public (adults and students in 7th grade and older) to a screening of the film “Miss Representation” on Sunday, September 21 at 1 p.m. in their sanctuary. A free lunch is offered from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the social hall. Miss Representation is an award-winning documentary by Jennifer Siebel Newsom. The film interweaves stories from teenage girls with interviews from well-known women such as Dr. Condoleezza Rice, Lisa Ling, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Rosario Dawson, Dr. Jackson Katz, Dr. Jean Kilbourne, and Gloria Steinem to give an inside look at the media and its message. The film’s motto, “You can't be what you can't see,” underscores an implicit message that young women need and want positive role models, and that the media has thus far neglected its unique opportunity to provide them. The film includes a social action campaign to address change in policy, education and call for socially responsible business. For more information about the film, click here. The church is located at 8986 Elk Grove Blvd, Elk Grove, CA  95624. For more information about the screening, contact Michelle Smith, or Pastor Kathy La Point-Collup at (916) 686-8303. Admission is free but donations are welcome.
