Miss Representation: Our Place In the World as Women

In this world where so many women are striving to look like rail thin runway models and will even undergo painful plastic surgery to look like a plastic doll, it has become increasingly difficult to get noticed for anything more than our “looks.”

My teenage daughter’s friend shared this video with me and I felt compelled to share it with you all.  It is the trailer to the film Miss Representation, which premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network. It delivers a very powerful message about our place in the world as women.  Please take a moment to watch!

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good.  Luckily, this is not difficult.  ~Charlotte Whitton
