I’ve been on an awakening-post-feminism feminist kick,* so Kim’s high recommendation of Miss Representation has good timing. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom (Yes, that one, SF dweller. That one.), it’s a documentary analyzing the misrepresentation of women in the media, and apparently it’s quite good! Good enough, even, to have premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. Interview subjects include Condoleezza Rice, Rachel Maddow, and Lisa Ling.
I just bought my ticket for a San Francisco screening at the end of the month. Join my friends and me!

I’m really looking forward to discussing the film afterward. (The destiny of an Ethnic Studies major is that she be forever starved for intelligent discourse about minorities in media representation.) Hope you can join us!
