Miss Representation

"The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any"-Alice Walker

For one of my classes I was invited to go to a screening of this film. If you can find a screening of this film I would highly recommend seeing it. It talks about the demeaning aspects the media portrays for women and the way it is attacking the self esteem and the self worth of all women. It is blunt about how women are portrayed and placed in second after men but it gave me such a realization to the power that us women really do have. ALWAYS be a role model for other women and girls. Make it a point to be accepting and nonjudgemental. A lot of the attacks on women come from other women. When was the last time you didn't critique the way a woman looked or acted. I find myself doing that to the tv screen all of the time... like "wow she has put on some weight" or "could she be wearing anymore makeup?" It is AWFUL! Love the women around you, support women and their amazing accomplishments, and help to bring them higher not lower.
