that our young women and men
overwhelmingly receive is that a
woman's value and power lie in her
youth, beauty and sexuality — and
not in her intellect, skills and leader-
ship capacities," Brickman added.
The screening and discussion are
part of two days of education and
action against sexism and domestic
abuse. Katz is sponsored by JCADA.
On Monday, April 16, Katz will
facilitate three different discussions
about the roles we can play in reduc-
ing the incidence of domestic abuse:
• A Men's Call to Action: a breakfast
for men at 7:30 a.m. at Congregation
Shaarey Zedek in Southfield.
• A Community Call to Action: a
lunch-and-learn at Jewish Family
Service from noon-1:30 p.m. Social
Work CEUs will be provided for this
event only.
•A Teens' Call to Action: for all
community teens will take place from
6-7:30 p.m. at Temple Israel in West
Bloomfield.
Reservations are required for all
three events.
Miss Representation was writ-
ten and directed by Jennifer Siebel
Newsom. This powerful documen-
tary exposes mainstream media's
contribution to the under-repre-
sentation of women in positions of
power and influence in America, and
challenges the media's limited, often
disparaging and sexist portrayals of
women and girls. Stories from teen
girls and provocative interviews with
politicians, journalists, entertainers,
activists and academics offer many
examples of demeaning portrayals
in the media that impede women's
ability to achieve leadership posi-
tions and develop feelings of self-
worth and power.
The film offers startling facts
and statistics that will leave audi-
ences armed with a new perspective.
Condoleezza Rice, Lisa Ling, Nancy
Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow,
Rosario Dawson, Katz, Jean Kilbourne
and Gloria Steinem add their voices
and perspectives throughout the film.
Tickets for the screening and dis-
cussion with Katz are $10 for adults,
$5 for teens and arranged prices for
school and youth groups and media
representatives. For more information
