Screening of ‘Miss Representation’

August 2, 2012

I know that there are possibly only a small number of you who actually live in Sydney or thereabouts, but I’ve secured the license to screen the documentary:

Miss Representation

Click here for preview

It’s on Monday 3rd September at 6.30pm and it will only cost $20 pp. This covers the cost of the license and the wonderful venue, Dendy Cinema Opera Quays – near the Opera House!

A pretty amazing deal, I think!

This is a great opportunity for parents to see the effects popular culture is having on both our girls AND boys. It also 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.

Spread the word!

If you, or any people you know, are interested in coming along, just look at the comments to this post, as it tells you how to pay to secure a seat.

I hope to see you there!

      Yaaayy! Cool! Just deposit $20 per person via bank transfer (and write YOUR NAME as the reference. I’ll have a list on the night with names of those who have purchased seats. The account is:

      Name: Paula
      BSB: 062-322
      Account #: 1039 1110
      (It’s a Commonwealth Bank account)

    Me too! I’ll follow your above instructions
    thank you!

      Fantastic! Just deposit the money and write your name as the reference – it’ll secure a seat. I don’t have ‘tickets’ as such – but I’ll have a list on the night. I’ll let you know when the payment clears.
      See you then 🙂

      • Sylvia said

        is it ok if I buy the tickets on the night, I have 2 people that aren’t sure if they can make it =)

      • questionsforwomen said

        Absolutely. I think we’ll be right with seats. If you like, I can hold your seat and just write on my list that you’ll pay on the night. Is it just you that’s definite at this point?

    Is it possible to show up on the night and pay then? I’m not sure if I can make it, but I will get along if I can.

    • questionsforwomen said

      Absolutely. I don’t think I’ll run out of seats. Plenty of room at this stage.
      Hope to see you then 🙂

        Hi Paula,

        I’ve sent you an email re: the booking to the questions for women facebook page, but is there an email address I can contact you on?

  7. Melita said

    I’d love to come. I found out about this via Motherhugger’s blog.

    • questionsforwomen said

      Fantastic! Either secure a seat by paying $20 through the bank transfer or come along and pay on the night. The bank transfer details are in the ‘comments’ of my post. See you there! x

  8. Hi, I’m coming. Would like to get tickets on the night if that’s okay. Really looking forward to it.

    • questionsforwomen said

      Sure Natalie! Just bring $20 on the night. There are no tickets, as such. You’re buying a seat. 🙂
      See you then! 🙂

  9. I’d love to come too, with my 14-year-old daughter. Are you sure you won’t run out of seats? 🙂

  10. Kirsty Miller said

    If we can’t make it on the night, is there any other time that we can watch this?

    • questionsforwomen said

      Hi Kirsty. Unfortunately, I only got the license for one viewing. I’ve heard of another screening but I’m not sure where. I’m finding out tomorrow and I’ll pass on the details to you when I find out.
      🙂 Paula

    I found this via Melinda Tankard Reist’s blog ( Would like to correct something, Dendy Cinemas is not at the actual Sydney Opera House, it is at Circular Quay (which is certainly near the Sydney Opera House).

    • questionsforwomen said

      Thanks Colin. Yes, it’s Opera Quays – I have written that for everything else I used to advertise for this, but hadn’t in this post. Thanks for the ‘heads up’ – I’ve corrected it now. 🙂

      • questionsforwomen said

        I received your payment, Colin. Thank you! I’ll see you Monday Night! 😀

    I am transferring $20 for one ticket right now, thanks! Lana Williams

    • questionsforwomen said

      Hey Lana. I just wanted to check whether you send the payment, as it hasn’t come through yet. If you have, it might come through tomorrow. Not sure how banks work over the weekend! 🙂
      Hope to see you tomorrow night.

  13. EllenM said

    Hi Paula, Can I please reserve seats for myself and two friends? We will pay on the night. Thanks so much for organising this!!
    Thanks, Ellen

    • questionsforwomen said

      No worries! Three seats under the name Ellen M?

      • EllenM said

        Yes please!!

      • EllenM said

        Hi, is it alright if we are a little late? One of my friends has a meeting, and we are not confident that we will arrive before 6:30. What would happen if we arrive, say 10 minutes after? I really hope we are on time, but I’m just not sure.
