On March 8, Stimulus Productions (one of Philadelphia's premier LGBTQ dance parties and organizations) will be hosting a screening of the ground-breaking documentary, Miss Representation, at William Way Community Center (1315 Spruce Street) in Philadelphia.
The film Miss Representation exposes how American youth are being sold the concept that women and girls’ value lies in their youth, beauty and sexuality. Stimulus is hosting this screening, at the start of women's history month, to spark a dynamic conversation about how misogyny and sexism in the media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. Ultimately, they hope that this will be the first of many steps to empower the women the thriving Philly LGBTQ community to unite and work to eradicate gender stereotypes and pervasive sexism throughout this country and the world.
Stimulus is collaborating with the William Way Community Center, Elements Organization, GALAEI, Delaware Valley Legacy Fund, Attic Youth Center, GO! – Philly Women Giving to Others, Stir Lounge, Sentry Art Advisory Services, Gender Reel and more!
Community sponsors will be present at the event to answer questions and distribute materials about their organizations.
