Great Conversations At Miss Representation Screening

On Monday December 5th, Peace Geeks co-hosted two sold-out screening of the documentary film Miss Representation, which discusses the misrepresentation of women in the media and the corresponding link to the under-representation of women as leaders in public and private organizations and institutions. The first screening was followed by a panel discussion facilitated by YWCA Executive Director Janet Austin, and featuring Pamela Martin, Kirk Lapointe, Amy Chan and Carolyn Jack. The second screening was followed by an audience discussion about the key issues raised in the film and focused on actions individuals can take today to start shifting attitudes. Peace Geeks introduced the Ushahidi-based site called UnleashthePotential.org which allows individuals to report on actions they are taking promote change.
