April 'Hot Topic'. DO SEXIST MEDIA PORTRAYALS KEEP WOMEN OUT OF LEADERSHIP ROLES AND POLITICS? is the topic for our next "Hot Topics" Discussion April 25.

The documentary film 'Miss Representation' shows that stereotyped or disparaging portrayals of women and girls in the mainstream media contribute to women's under-representation in positions of influence starting as early as their teen years. Why is this? How much have things changed? What action can we take?

WHEN: Saturday, April 25, 2:00-4:00 PM

WHERE: Family Study Room, Alameda Free Library, 1550 Oak Street @ Lincoln Avenue

FACILITATOR: Dorie Guess Behrstock. Pre-registration required (limit: 12 persons).
