The Misrepresentation of Women

Later this month I’m introducing the film Miss Representation to a group of women in finance in Edinburgh. Afterwards there’ll be a panel with some notable women, including Scottish MPs and advocates.

I’m really looking forward to it…but… At age 58 I never in my wildest dream imagined I’d be doing this. Not giving the talk, but there still being a need for the talk and the film. I really thought the world would be much more equal for women now. At age 18, when I railed against stupid soap powder ads showing women having a virtual orgasm over their men’s whiter than white shirts, I thought by the time I reached 58 it would be a distant memory. Instead it seems to have got worse.

Here’s the promotional video:
