MissRepresentation Screening 08/03/2012; Breast Cancer Action Montreal (BCAM), Girls Action Foundation (Foundation filles d’action), Simone de Beauvoir Institute, Department of Communication Studies, Concordia University, FemmeToxic
On the occasion of the 8th Annual Lanie Melamed Memorial Event on Thursday 8th March 2012, BCAM and its partners hosted a screening of MissRepresentation.
The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls. The screening was followed by a panel discussion led by Erika Jahn (FemmeToxic), Liz Miller (Department of Communication Studies, Concordia University), and Tatiana Fraser (Girls Action Foundation/ Foundation filles d’action)
Below are my reflections on a splendid night and an eye-opening documentary.
