The trailer for this film, MissRepresentation, has been going around the internet and giving me shivers. This is the kind of shit we talk about all the time—oh, women are constantly poorly portrayed in all forms of media, oh, women hold few positions of power within major media companies—but seeing as these shitty issues show no signs of abating, I'm glad some people made what looks to be a well-crafted documentary about them.

Two things about this movie—
1. This is promoted video recommended when you watch the trailer on YouTube:

2. This is how reviews break down by age/sex on IMDB:

Older men hate it! I find that encouraging. No screenings are scheduled yet in Portland, but you can sign up to host one.
