Miss Representation Screening – a great success
On February 1 a packed room was treated to a screening of Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s documentary Miss Representation presented by the All Party Parliamentary Group on Body Image, Central YMCA and All Walks Beyond the Catwalk. The award-winning film, exploring how media misrepresentations of women have led to their under-representation in positions of power and influence, was followed by a panel discussion chaired by Jo Swinson MP and Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Body Image with panellists Lynne Featherstone MP, Minister for Equalities; Colleen Harris, Communications and Diversity Adviser; Susie Orbach, writer and psychotherapist; and Malorie Blackman, author.
There was a lot of feedback following the event and hopefully it will lead to great things down the road!
