Miss Representation is a documentary about the media’s negative portrayal of women and girls. Now is your chance to bring this important film to your school / group / club.
Though Miss Representation is American, we feel that its message and the questions it raises are important in an Irish context. The IFN has hosted two sold-out screenings, and we know that more people want to see the film.
The Irish Feminist Network is proud to announce that (with some legal constraints) we can now offer to screen the film at your school / group / club for a limited time only.

The Irish Feminist Network is honoured to be screening the critically acclaimed documentary 'Miss Representation', by Jennifer Siebel Newsom in the Sugar Club on Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012. View event on Facebook.
This documentary 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.
A lot of the issues raised by this film can be felt in Ireland, and after the screening we will hold a panel discussion and open Q&A with the audience.
We hope you'll join us at this event and share your opinion on the issues raised.
Please book your tickets early to avoid disappointment, as seating is limited. Tickets €10 available here.
