An official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Miss Representation has also aired on OWN: the Oprah Winfrey Network and looks into modern media – critically evaluating the portrayal of women in film, advertising and leadership roles. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the documentary is shaped by stories from teenage girls, interviews with women in leadership positions, video clips, advertisements and the latest statistics. The film includes comments from noted leaders such as Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho and Gloria Steinem, who will offer the audience a new perspective on what being a woman in power truly means.
