An International Women’s Day event Tuesday, March 20, at 6 p.m. will include a screening of the documentary film “Miss Representation” and the launch of the 2012 Survival Guide.
The event will take place in The Piazza of the Campus Center Building CC at Pasadena City College, 1570 E. Colorado Blvd.
The 2012 Survival Guide, published by the Pasadena Commission on the Status of Women, features local resources for emergency food, shelter, child care, health care, housing, legal assistance, women’s organizations, afterschool programs and other information. The free guide, in English and Spanish, will be distributed at the event.
“Miss Representation,” written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, proposes that mainstream media contribute to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence in the U.S. The film includes narratives from teenage girls and interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists and academics.
Sponsored by the Pasadena Commission on the Status of Women, Pasadena City College Feminist Club and the Greater Pasadena Chapter of the National Women’s Political Caucus, the event is free and open to the public.
