At Divine Consultant we support many causes and MissRepresentation.org directly draws a parallel to our own program Saving Girls. We invite you to learn more about this non profit organization. MissRepresentation.org believes that all people should be equally represented in our media, that our voices should be heard and that we should all be valued for our talents, capacity as leaders, and ability to contribute to the world at large.
MissRepresentation.org is a non-profit social action campaign and media organization established to shift people’s consciousness, inspire individual and community action, and ultimately transform culture so everyone, regardless of gender, age or circumstance can fulfill their potential.
How They Are Making A Difference Together
Using social media, women and girls are speaking out, telling their stories and influencing change. Men and boys are standing up to sexism, countering hyper-masculinity and championing women as leaders.
Schools are using the Miss Representation‘s Curriculum to educate youth around media literacy and to inspire and activate students to make change.
Communities are hosting screenings and discussions to shift the cultural mindset around gender and end sexism.
Consumers are using their power to celebrate positive media and advertising, and challenge negative media and advertising.
Miss Representation is the award-winning documentary film that exposes how mainstream media contributes to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman or girl to feel powerful herself.
