Miss Representation shows ugly side of women in media. “The documentary harnesses a wealth of clips, interviews, and statistics to show that women are being depicted on TV and online as poorly as ever, with dangerous potential side effects for girls sitting on the other side of the screen.”

Mother Jones, 10/20/11

Sundance review: Miss Representation “A relevant and important doc that deconstructs the insidious role of visual media in the widespread, unbalanced depiction of women and girls, Miss Representation is destined for long-term festival play and could make a significant social impact on broadcast and DVD.”

The Hollywood Reporter, 2/3/11

Facing up to the female power conundrum. “The media doesn’t help women feel okay about power — a point that Jennifer Siebel Newsom nails in a new documentary called Miss Representation.”

Fortune, 1/31/11

Revolution at Sundance. “Miss Representation directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, is a long-overdue look at how media objectification of women is internalized by young girls. Real, classic — that is, unapologetic — feminism is back, at least at Sundance.”

HuffPost, 1/31/11

Sundance 2011: Is the media keeping women out of politics? “If you think we’re in the midst of historic times for women in politics with Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and even Sarah Palin on the national stage, one documentary at Sundance is urging you to think again.”
