Miss Representation Screening on International Women's Day

It's about time!  So many of you have requested an event to watch this.  I even got in touch with the Miss Representation organizers and took all their batch emails to see if I could get a lead on a showtime here.  In the end, the credit goes to Sara M., though, for the heads up on this one.  Good job, Sara!  :D

The Royal Cinema in Toronto will be screening Miss Representation on International Women's Day, March 6, 2013.

"One of America’s most powerful exports is our media. Too often, a harmful image of women and girls is exported along with it. At MissRepresentation.org, we are working with these brave partners to think globally and act locally to improve the story we tell the world about women."

"Premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Miss Representation is written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom and exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media's limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself."

Tickets are $15. They can be purchased in advance, or at the door. Here is the Eventbrite link: http:// vireomissrepresentation.eve ntbrite.ca/

Hot tips:  Buy your ticket now and arrive at least 30 min in advance.

    aha! So it's for IWD, not on. Alas, today I figured out if I take a night off this week I won't make a deadline. Looking forward to an update here!

    Got my ticket! Unfortunately I have a class until 6, so I might have to meet everyone inside.

    I will aim to be at the theater between 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm. I'll send my cell number to those attending tomorrow before I leave work. You can text or call if you can't find us (y'know up until the movie starts), will save spots for anyone who has signed up.

    Yes, international women's day is March 8.... rather unsurprisingly it's hard to get a theater to give up a slot on a Friday... so the MissRepresentation.org aimed to have the film screened the week of.

    Yay for the screening! But I'm confused -- isn't IWD always March 8 (8 sideways is an infinity sign, as in March Forever)?

  • Tara

    Got my ticket! I have to rush over after work, so I'll probably have to find you inside.

    Hey Tara,

    Do you think you could "announce" this, I can't as I'm not a group moderator or a host. Right now the front page shows as no upcoming meetups and this hasn't been sent out to the group. Let me know if not, will try another group. I've set up a Facebook group so there are a few of us going.
