Carlow University

In honor of its 40th anniversary, the Carlow University’s Women’s Studies program presents
A SCREENING OF MISS REPRESENTATION
A powerful, highly praised documentary that correlates negative media stereotypes of women with low participation of women in the political process.

Followed by a discussion panel with experts from Carlow, other local universities, and nonprofit organizations who will comment on the film and invite the audience to consider how women’s and girls’ complex realities are distorted in the media.


The film, which premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and aired on the OWN:
Oprah Winfrey Network, has since generated an online community movement on women, media, voting, and political power.
