Miss Representation offers a disturbing but necessary conversation between some of the media's most powerful women about the ongoing gender inequalities that are propelled by the inaccurate representation of women in the media. This documentary takes the argument a step further and claims that this inaccurate portrayal of women is not confined to the media, but spills over into what leadership roles are available to women.
Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem, Katie Couric, Nancy Pelosi, Geena Davis, Condoleezza Rice, Rachel Maddow, and Rosario Dawson are just a few of the women who participate in this discussion each drawing on their own personal struggles to bring unique insights to the larger conversation.
