New DVD: Miss Representation

April 18, 2012

We recently added Miss Representation to the DBRL collection. The film played at the MU Women’s Center in March and currently has a rating of 85% from audiences at Rotten Tomatoes. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:

As the most persuasive and pervasive force of communication in our culture, media is educating yet another generation that a woman’s primary value lay in her youth, beauty and sexuality–and not in her capacity to lead, making it difficult for women to obtain leadership positions and for girls to reach their full potential. The film accumulates startling facts and statistics that leave audiences shaken, armed with a new perspective.
