Sharing Miss Representation with our employees was a powerful experience. The film. . .generated an active dialogue. . .and empowered our employees to speak out when they see things that need to change. This film raises critical issues facing our society today, and I would encourage other companies to become part of this important conversation. —Tracy Layney, VP of Global HR Strategy, Technology & Operations, Gap, Inc.
As a [white] male in my 50’s [Miss Representation] made me painfully aware of the way we have mistreated women. . .our ‘male‘ collective behavior has created an. . .environment marked by a lack of integrity, fairness, and professionalism. This, in my opinion, is an environment that must change. I feel the need to be one male that steps forward to help with that change. Did I enjoy this? Not really. Did I need this exposure? Absolutely. More men need to be exposed to this film. Too many men like myself have gone far too long without seeing both sides of the themes brought forward in Miss Representation. Time for us to wake up. —Employee at Charles Schwab Screening, Denver, CO
This powerful movie [Miss Representation] is not only educational, it’s entertaining, sometimes shocking, and really quite inspiring. Since our screening, I’ve heard a viewer talk about starting a media literacy campaign in her local community, another plans to run for office, and countless others plan to share this film with their friends, families, and most importantly, teenage daughters and sons. It’s more than a movie; it’s starting a movement. —Bonnie Buol Ruszczyk, Atlanta Independent Women’s Network
[Miss Representation] really helped me to better understand many of the difficulties women face today. It provides striking and insightful examples of inequalities suffered by women from the perspectives of both men and women. —Meelap, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Student
