From Miss Representation to Mass Representation: Educating for Change

Media Literacy Program for High Schools & Middle Schools



The UMass Dartmouth Center for Women, Gender & Sexuality has created a state-wide pilot media literacy program called; From Miss Representation to Mass Representation: Educating for Change. 

                On September 28th & 29th we held a media literacy training conference at UMass Dartmouth and we trained over 50 college students from around the state in our media literacy curriculum. These trained UMass college students can come to your school and facilitate our program. The program we have built uses the documentary Miss Representation to start a progressive conversation with students about women in the media, sexism in the media and the overall bias towards women.  This program is FREE to ALL schools in Massachusetts, we will even purchase your school a copy of the Miss Representation DVD, which will include age appropriate clips of the film. 


If you would like to bring this program to your school please just send an email with the following to

A primary contact person to set up dates & times for screenings.
