As the most persuasive and pervasive force of communication in our culture, popular media is educating yet another generation that a woman’s primary value lies in her youth, beauty, and sexuality—and not in her capacity as a leader. Writer/director Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s documentary film Miss Representation interweaves stories from teenage girls with provocative interviews from Condoleezza Rice, Lisa Ling, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Gloria Steinem, and others. (2011, Dir. Jennifer Seibel Newsom, color, 90 min.)
