Miss Representation by Jennifer Siebel Newsom( Visual )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,098 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, Miss Representation uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media's limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself. In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message that our young women and men overwhelmingly receive is that a woman's value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader. While women have made great strides in leadership over the past few decades, the United States is still 90th in the world for women in national legislatures, women hold only 3% of clout positions in mainstream media, and 65% of women and girls have disordered eating behaviors. Stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists and academics, like Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho, Rosario Dawson and Gloria Steinem build momentum as Miss Representation accumulates startling facts and statistics that will leave the audience shaken and armed with a new perspective." --Kanopy website

Provincia statunitense, anni Settanta. I coniugi Lisbon sono una tranquilla coppia di mezza età (lui insegnante, lei casalinga) con cinque bellissime figlie di età compresa tra i tredici e i diciassette anni: Cecilia, Lux, Bonnie, Mary e Therese. Affettuosi ma rigidamente cattolici, i coniugi impongono alle ragazze una severa disciplina morale che lascia ben poco spazio ai contatti con il mondo esterno, se non quelli limitati alle ore di scuola. Dopo un primo tentativo di suicidio Cecilia si butta dalla finestra della sua stanza e muore infilzata sulla cancellata sottostante. Superato il dolore, la famiglia torna alla vita di sempre e, quando alcuni ragazzi invitano le sorelle al ballo scolastico di fine anno, i genitori decidono di acconsentire. Tuttavia Lux contravviene al rigido coprifuoco imposto dalla madre e causa il ritiro da scuola e un periodo di isolamento per sé e le sorelle. I ragazzi, tuttavia, riescono a comunicare con loro e organizzano una fuga: proprio la notte della partenza le quattro sorelle si tolgono la vita
