In Celebration of Women’s History Month this March, The Rio Theatre and the Vancouver Women’s Advisory Committee present the documentary Miss Representation this Sunday, March 30th at 2:00 pm at the Rio Theatre. The documentary by Jennifer Newsom explores the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America and challenges the media’s limited portrayal of what it means to be a powerful woman. Miss Representation has won many awards including Official Selection at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011 and received recognition at film festivals all over North America as well as internationally.   The movie will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Vancouver City Councilwoman Andrea Reimer. Panel speakers will include Vancouver’s own dynamic duo directors Jen and Sylvia Soska.  Doors open at 1:30 pm, documentary gets under way at 2:00 pm. Tickets are available in advance for $8 or will be available at the door for $10.
