Angelo State University will host a screening of the documentary film “Miss Representation” at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 23, at the Plaza Verde residence hall, 1941 S. Van Buren St.

Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, “Miss Representation” focuses on the representations of women in mainstream media and how those representations can contribute to making it more difficult for women to achieve positions of power and influence in the United States. The documentary weaves the viewpoints of teenage girls with thought-provoking statistics and interviews with some of America’s leading women politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists and academics.

The film screening, sponsored by the Office of Student Affairs, is free and open to the public and will be followed by a panel discussion.
