Miss Representation presentation by Sister Mona Simcoe
This is a film that was made to inspire and motivate us all to be agents of change in our culture. Canadian youth are being sold the concept that women and girls’ value lies in their youth, beauty, and sexuality. It’s time to break that cycle of mistruth. Miss Representation is so much more than a film-it’s a full-fledged movement to awaken people’s consciousness to recognize the true value of women, change the way women and girls are represented in the media, interrupt and stop patterns of sexism, and ensure a tipping point that will lead to gender parity in leadership throughout the United States and Canada. Speaking notes attached.
