Melbourne Central host Australia’s first-ever screening of controversial documentary Miss Representation
Australia’s largest young female entrepreneur network “League of Extraordinary Women” will be hosting the first-ever Australian screening of the award winning documentary Miss Representation at Melbourne Central on Friday 22nd June. Miss Representation is a controversial document which shot to fame in the US when aired on Oprah which looks at the representation of females in the media.
The documentary by Jennifer Siebel Newsom premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and explores how the media’s misrepresentations of women have led to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence.
The film aims to eradicate gender stereotypes and create lasting cultural and sociological change. There will be a panel of speakers on the night who, following the screening, will discuss the documentary and how this film impacts local Australian women.
Model and the Face of Caulfield Bree Laughlin will MC the event and politician Kerry Chikarovski will be included in the panel of female leaders who will discuss the documentary directly after the screening.
