Miss Representation hits Regina

Are you dying to know what shade of lipstick Michelle Obama wears? Of course not. So why does the media insist on these puerile details when it comes to stories about powerful women?

The University of Regina will be hosting a screening/discussion of the acclaimed film “Miss Representation” on October 16 in the Education Auditorium at 7 pm.  The film explores portrayals of notable women in the media and how that affects girls’ perceptions of what is and isn’t professionally possible. Hayley Wickenheiser (four-time Olympic gold medalist) will be on hand to get the discussion going.  Tickets available at the door. For advanced tickets, email Kim at
