Miss Representation and REPRESENT

Are you concerned about how women and girls are portrayed in the media? Do you get angry when you see yet another scantily-clad woman on a billboard where your children can easily view it? Do you want your daughter to grow up and hold a position of power? Are you afraid that she will lose her sense of herself before she's 15? Do you want your son to view women as an equal instead of just an object to be viewed?

Come see Miss Representation with MamaCITA! We are holding an exclusive screening of the documentary film Miss Representation, which "explores how the media's misrepresentations of women have led to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence," at the Hiway Theatre in Jenkintown PA on March 10th. The film will start at 10:30 am, and afterwards we will host a celebratory brunch, along with an art exhibit called REPRESENT. Our exhibit will highlight women who inspire us and who we find to be strong role models for us and other women and girls. REPRESENT will take place right across the street from the Theatre at Jenkintown's new art gallery, The Art of It.

Tickets can be purchased through MamaCITA's website. They are $25 each, and proceeds from the event will benefit the Girls Inc. Media Literacy® program in Philadelphia, which encourages girls to think critically about the media and its effects on girls. Girls Inc. inspires all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
