Miss Representation explores women's under-representation in positions of power and influence and challenges the limited and often disparaging portrayals of women in media. Writer/Director Jennifer Siebel Newsom brings together some of America's most influential thought leaders in politics, news, entertainment, and academia, including Condoleezza Rice, Katie Couric, Geena Davis, Lisa Ling, Marissa Mayer, Cory Booker, Jean Kilbourne, and Jackson Katz, to give us an inside look at the media's messaging. As one of the most persuasive and pervasive forces of communication in our culture, mainstream media is educating yet another generation that a woman's primary value lies in her youth, beauty and sexuality—not in her capacity as a leader.
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Avoid tipsy tweeting and tanked tweeting, and ideally... 'don't drink and digit'. Plus an illustrated humorous guide derived from research to help you avoid and spot the 5Fs online (foul; false; foggy; flannel; and flaming). Tweet responsibly.
Do you want to be able to spot and avoid social media pitfalls? mark Shephard has studied the content of thousands of social media posts for research into social media and the Scottish independence referendum debate online and provide some core illustrated tips on what to spot and what mistakes to avoid when posting online.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
