The film, Miss Representation, will have its first showing in the Quad City area on Tuesday, March 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Rogolski Center Ballroom on the SAU campus. “Miss Representation” is a 2011 American documentary film that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011. It has been winning awards at festivals all over the world. The film explores the distorted way in which the media portrays women, and the effects this has on girls as they develop their own self-images. A discussion will follow the screening of the film. The film is being brought to the area by the Davenport-Bettendorf branch of AAUW, and Women’s Studies, the SAAT team and Her Campus from St.Ambrose University. The public is invited to attend. There is no charge.
