Directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom. Smart, powerful women discuss the way media representations disempower them. Hundreds of provocative images of women’s bodies form the counterpoint to interviews with such figures as Condoleezza Rice, Gloria Steinem, and media critic Jean Kilbourne, who argue that media-induced objectification of women causes depression and eating disorders, and lowers women’s confidence, ambition, cognitive function, GPAs, and, most importantly, political power. Warning: profanity. Grades 9 and up. Color. 88 minutes. Virgil Films. ©2012.
