Miss Representation

On 3rd March 2014, Mulberry students attended a screening of Miss Representation at Southbank Centre, a film which explores how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film was written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, who visited Mulberry School prior to the screening for a Question and Answer session with students.

Sixth Form Media students attended the session and asked Ms Siebel Newsom how she made the film. They also discussed whether the lack of visibility of women in positions of leadership affects young women’s aspirations and how young women can influence positive change in the media.
