Miss Representation by Jennifer Siebel Newsom( Visual )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Escrita i dirigida per Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Miss Representation exposa com els grans mitjans de comunicació i de cultura contribueixen a la baixa representació de les dones en posicions de poder i influència a Amèrica, ja que han limitat i exagerat els estereotips més comuns sota els que hem tractat de viure des de fa molt de temps. En una societat on els mitjans de comunicació són la força més persuasiva per donar forma a les normes culturals, el missatge col·lectiu que rebem és que el valor d'una dona rau en la seva joventut, la seva bellesa i la seva sexualitat, i no pas en la seva qualitat de líder. Mentre que les dones han fet grans avenços en el lideratge en els últims decennis, els Estats Units són el 33è país quant a nombre de dones presents a les cambres legislatives americanes. I la situació no és pas millor fora del govern. Les dones representen només el 17% dels directors, productors executius, escriptors, cineastes i editors que treballen a les 250 pel·lícules americanes més taquilleres. "No pots ser el que no pots veure" és la frase que descriu la situació actual de les dones en l'àmbit de la política i la ciència. Totes volen ser models i estrelles de TV, però poques esperen convertir-se en caps d'estat."--DVD
