‘Miss Representation’ of Women Discussed at HACC’s Gettysburg Campus

GETTYSBURG, Pa. – “Miss Representation,” a documentary screening lunch and learn will take place from 1:15-2:40 p.m. on Thursday, March 27, 2014, in the Robert C. Hoffman Community Room on the Gettysburg Campus of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College.

“Miss Representation” is written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, American documentary filmmaker and actress. The film exposes how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in influential positions in America, challenges the limited – and often disparaging – portrayals of women and girls and acknowledges the difficulty for women to achieve leadership positions.

The screening will be followed by a reflective discussion led by Jessica Knouse, coordinator of student life and multicultural programs, and Esther Waybright, community education coordinator at Survivors, Inc. of Gettysburg and Adams County.

For additional information regarding the lunch and learn, please contact Jessica Knouse at jlknouse@hacc.edu or 717-339-3536.

HACC’s Gettysburg Campus is located at 731 Old Harrisburg Road.
