Join us for MissRepresentation
The average teenager spends more than 10 hours each day consuming media - more than sleeping or attending school. Media is the messenger and an increasingly powerful one. Mainstream media bombards children and adults alike with overwhelming messages that women should be beautiful and sexy, while men should be powerful an often violent. These messages limit children's
ideas of what is possible in the world and can have damaging effects on their self-esteem, health, and the way they treat others.
Join us for a special screening of Miss Representation, a new documentary by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, about the effects of media on young girls and women, Thursday, May 10th at 7:30 at the Lark Theater in Larkspur. This is an adult viewing and tickets are available outside of the theater - $15.00 each - cash and checks only.
This is also a fundraiser for the Miss Representation DVD and educational curriculum to benefit California public schools. Grab a friend and spread the word. The more the merrier!
