Miss Representation

posted by Nell Minow

Every parent, educator, and teenager should watch the documentary “Miss Representation,” about the way that media shapes our perceptions of what it means to be male and female.

    Thanks so much for posting this link. Even the trailer is thought-provoking. I have been concerned about this issue for so long, but have always felt like a lone voice. Now I am mother to a strong 20-year-old daughter who knows her worth is not tied to her looks, yet can be comfortable with her femininity. But it has been a long struggle, even back to the days of explaining why I wouldn’t give her teeny-bopper music with the “you say you don’t want it, but you really do” kind of lyrics. I’m glad someone is bringing this message to a wider audience.

      Thanks, Nancy! Your daughter is very lucky to have you as a Mom.
