Miss RepresentationFree and open to the public

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.

PANELISTS: Jennifer Bryan, Psychologist; Lori Caplan, Superintendent, Watervliet City Schools; Penny Perkins, Assistant Professor Of Communications, The Sage Colleges; Susan Scrimshaw, President, The Sage Colleges; and Bob Winchester, Board Member, Niskayuna Board of Education

MODERATED BY: Albany City Court Judge Helena Heath-Roland and Director, Helen M. Upton Center for Women’s Studies, Russell Sage College, Shealeen Meaney
