View the film; voice your thoughts.
 
We will be showing the documentary Miss Representation, followed by an initial reaction discussion. The discussion will be led by Rabbi Yair Robinson (Congregation Beth Emeth) and Melanie Ross Levin (ECC parent & Director, Office of Women's Advancement and Advocacy, State of Delaware).
 
Light refreshments will be served during the film; afterwards, discuss topics analyzed in the film:
 
Miss Representation exposes the dangers and distortions that our current media has created for our viewing pleasure. The dangers are in the limiting and distorting views of women and their bodies and the nature of sex and relationship. This effects both our young boys and girls and their need for healthy self-esteem as they themselves voice in this film.
With many voices, from children themselves to experts in many fields of social science and the media, we see the damage that stereotyping and sexualizing the role of females have on ones ability to develop a true sense of intimacy in relationships. These limiting views of sexual encounter and its representation of pleasure creates mistaken and again, distorted expectations around sex and intimacy that the young have to navigate through.
