Miss Representation-Missoula (Grades 6-8)
GSMW invites middle school girls to the public library to watch a film about girls' empowerment. Along with the film and some snacks, girls will play games, make an action plan, and discuss the importance of knowing your own power and thinking for yourself. At this event, girls will watch the documentary 'Miss Representation' which explores the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America and challenges the media's limited portrayal of what it means to be a powerful woman.
After watching the age-appropriate version of the film, girls will discuss the movie and talk with women university students about how media may influence them. Through discussion and participating in the activities, the girls will gain a clear perspective on how the media affects them and why they shouldn't believe everything they see and hear on TV.
GSMW will provide food and drinks. Girls will connect with college positive role models who have a strong sense of media's portrayal of women and its influence on our society. This event will give girls a chance to see the true workings of the media and help them understand the realistic view that every girl has an inner beauty and strength!
