“Miss Representation” lit up the screens at the Sundance Film Festival this past January and found a home just hours later when Oprah’s OWN team bought it the same evening. Written, directed and produced by Jennifer Siebel Newsom (actor, Stanford MBA, married to California Lieutenant Governor and former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom), the documentary takes an aggressive and frankly convincing approach to connect the dots between the way women are constructed in the media and the ways in which it ripples through our lives.
Newsom’s approach is simple. Through news clips, YouTube videos, shocking student stories and compelling interviews with the likes of Condoleezza Rice, Rachel Maddow, Geena Davis, Katie Couric and Gloria Steinem, “Miss Representation” breaks apart our media’s distortion of women and how it has led directly to an underrepresentation of women with power in “the real world.”
