CSUEB Concord campus to screen 'Miss Representation' on Oct. 20

  • October 19, 2012 5:00am

Attend a screening of Miss Representation on Saturday October 20 at 12:00pm at the CSUEB Concord Campus. This event is co-sponsored between the Associated Students of CSU East Bay and the Concord Branch of AAUW. There will be a short introduction by District IV Supervisor Karen Mitchoff and post- film discussion.

The documentary Miss Representation, by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, and aired on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. The film explores how the media’s misrepresentations of women have led to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence.

There will also be a donation at the door for anyone who cares to donate and a $5 parking lot fee for anyone not displaying a CSUEB parking pass. For more information, contact ASI Concord Representative Stephanie Pinkston at (925) 497-3023 or email asidirconcord@csueastbay.edu
