MissRep 300x300

Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s award winning documentary, Miss Representation, presents distortions of the practical realities of the lives of women and girls.

The film was first screened on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) October 20th.

San Francisco, California – Partnerships For Change®, a 501(c)3, international non-profit organization, is the fiscal sponsor for the documentary and has supported the release of the highly acclaimed and social media sensation, Miss Representation.

“When I was working with Ms. Siebel Newsom early on in the project, I knew she was onto documenting a deep wound in our society. It was through Newsom’s research and interviews that she was able to bring forward the long held practices of corporate advertisers and the media who endlessly promote sexist images of girls and women. These portrayals not only harms women’s lives, character, and potential it is reinforcing these stereotypes for the next generation of girls and boys. The time has come to create a community of individuals forwarding a movement of positive media representation of women in TV, film and the media.”  Jackie Miller, President and CEO of Partnerships For Change®, announced when she saw the completed project.
