“You can’t be what you can’t see.”

January 22, 2012

The quote in the title of this post is from a film called “Miss Representation.” It was aired at The Sundance Film Festival last year – but hasn’t made its way to Australia yet. I’m trying to see how I can get a copy of it because it looks amazing. I want to show it to ALL my students, male and female.

“You can’t be what you can’t see.”

Simple really.

Check out the link below of the trailer – let me know what you think.

    There was a showing of it at Sydney Uni late last year but it was $150 a ticket. If you can get access to it for (a lot)less than that I’d love to see it!!

    On a related topic, did you see this article in the NY Times. It does pose the question of how do we train boys to not objectify women and take responsibility for themselves?

    GREAT article, MsLJ!
    I can’t understand how it got to this stage – in ALL corners of the globe. Thanks for passing it on – it’s spot on. 🙂
