Miss Representation Screening Brisbane
Tuesday, November 20, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM (EST)
ARE YOU AN EXTRAORDINARY WOMAN?
Join us for one of Australia's first screenings of the controversial, award winning, US documentary, Miss Representation. The film explores how the media’s misrepresentations of women have led to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence.
The screening will be followed by a dynamic panel discussion.
As always, our fabulous gift bags will be available for all who attend. Food platters & popcorn will be circulating on the night but we suggest that you fill up on some dinner beforehand.
We are also very pleased to announce that we will be donating $5 for every ticket purchased to our charity partner Aim for The Stars.
Watch the trailer below and see why this documentary has been featured on Oprah and has won multiple awards.
