Miss Representation

Miss Representation: Screening and Panel

Hosted by Russell Sage College in partnership with the Capital District Women's Bar Association, Emma Willard, and the Robert Parker School

Miss Representation 

Part documentary and part call-to-action the "Miss Representation" project explores how the media's misrepresentations of women have led to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence.

The panel will discuss how to build different aspirations for young women – and expectations among their male counterparts – by incorporating change not only in the academic curriculum, but also in the culture of our schools and communities.
