Miss Representation

While doing some research, I came across this website and video trailer for a film called Miss Representation. This film exposes how American youth are being sold the idea that women and girls’ value lies in their youth, beauty and sexuality. The Miss Representation campaign seeks to empower women and girls and challenge media labels. I found this trailer and website to be quite interesting, seeing how we have been discussing media representation of women. Although this campaign doesn’t solely target African American women, I think it’s good for women of all walks of life to come together and fight against media labels. At the end of the day, African American women aren’t the only ones being misrepresented in the media.

  1. This sounds interesting I am going to have to look for this trailer, because I believe females should challenge media labels and encourage individuals to develop their own perceptions on females, and I also believe that women arent the only ones being misrepresented.
