I first saw 'Miss Representation' in Sydney in May when I stumbled across a screening quite by accident one night. Having a fairly strong interest in social justice issues and equity (particularly gender) I was intrigued by the content of the documentary and planned to screen the fim as part of a professional development session on gender equity for teachers in Adelaide in 2013.

As it turns out the opportunity to present this film to a much larger audience has arisen and I am delighted to be presenting three screenings of 'Miss Representation' to the general public at Adelaide Fringe 2013, as well as two screenings as part of the Youth Engagement Program (one for students, another specifically for educators and those who work with young people). The film's maker Jennifer Seibel Newsom explores a number of issues as she sees them throughout the documentary about the media's influence over the way women are portrayed in and by the media. Through the making of this film though, she has cleverly used the media with the support of a number of prominent American women (think Jane Fonda, Condaleezza Rice, Geena Davis plus many more) to explain why and how the overly sexualised presentation of women in the media is so detrimental to all people in our society today.

Although entirely based in the US, there are a number of prevailing themes in the documentary that Australian audiences will easily relate to (think electronic media, body image, photoshopping, inequality and sexism). The exploration of these issues creates a strong argument for increasing the potential for women to attain a greater profile in positions of power so that they can be involved in decision making processes and act as mentors and role models to younger generations in our society. 

Following at the culmination of each screening of the film I have organised Q&A panels featuring journalists, sportswomen, academics, educators and mental health practitioners to discuss the content of the film and how it applies to the Australian context. I will facilitate discussion about how we can best take the issues raised in the film to create some long-standing change to the status quo regarding the media's representation of women and girls in Australia. 

This screening ties in directly with the work that I do as Director of Equilibrium Counselling, Training, Consulting. It aligns with my philosophy that raising awareness about issues that are relevant to young people will increase the understanding of these issues and how to best manage them. The screening of this documentary will do precisely that.

Here's a sneak preview of the trailer of "Miss Representation." After you watch it, you'll understand why I am so passionate about getting this information out there!


There's quite a few costs associated with presenting 'Miss Representation' at Adelaide Fringe 2013 which include cinema hire, the fees payable to Oprah Winfrey Network for the rights to screen the film and advertising and promotion. I'm really excited about getting as many people as possible to come to the screenings of 'Miss Representation' at Adelaide Fringe in March because I know it is through individuals taking action and making change at a grassroots level that this situation will be changed. 

My sincerest thanks for your support in helping me to get this information out there.
