Miss Representation ; you can't be what you can't see !

Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, Miss
Representation (90 min; TV-14 DL) uncovers a glaring reality we live
with every day but fail to see. Written and directed by Jennifer
Siebel Newsom, the film exposes how mainstream media contribute to the
under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in
America. The film challenges the media’s limited and often
disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for
women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to
feel powerful herself.
In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural
norms, the collective message that our young women and men
overwhelmingly receive is that a woman’s value and power lie in her
youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader.
While women have made great strides in leadership over the past few
decades, the United States is still 90th in the world for women in
national legislatures, women hold only 3% of clout positions in
mainstream media, and 65% of women and girls have disordered eating
Stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with
politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists and academics, like
Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Margaret
Cho, Rosario Dawson and Gloria Steinem build momentum as Miss
Representation accumulates startling facts and statistics that will
leave the audience shaken and armed with a new perspective.

South Korean cosmetic surgery epidemic

Plastic surgery is booming in South Korea, as some believe plastic surgery is a better route to getting a good job. One survey says 90% of people believe good looks are important to getting a position.

Baby Beauty Queens

As the American phenomenon of the children’s beauty pageant hits the UK, this documentary uncovers a surreal new world where nine-year-olds get fake tans and seven-year-olds wear contact lenses.
With the grand final of the first ever Mini Miss UK beauty contest taking place at a leisure centre in Milton Keynes, it soon becomes clear that tantrums and tiaras may prevail over perfect poses and pouts. The mastermind behind the pageant is a middle-aged ex-beauty queen, who plans the entire event from her stairwell in Colchester.
The film follows three girls and their mothers in the lead up to the big event, and as they prepare to dazzle the judges the real reasons why they are all desperate to be crowned Mini Miss UK become apparent.
From the evangelical Christians who are convinced that God will help them win the pageant to the disadvantaged kid for whom the contest holds the key to a better life, the film portrays an eccentric, and at times disturbing, snapshot of modern Britain.

Space Barbie

The world knows Valeria Lukyanova as the girl who turned herself into a real-life Barbie doll. Controversy has surrounded her every move since her computer-perfect visage went viral last year.
However, what most of the world doesn't know is that Valeria is not a real girl at all, but a time-traveling spiritual guru whose purpose is to save the world from the clutches of superficiality and negative energy.
Valeria, AKA Space Barbie, gives us exclusive access to her world to show us how physical perfection truly is the best medium through which to deliver life-changing philosophy to the human race.
For more Space Barbie, take a look at our fashion shoot with her from this year's photo issue.

(NaturalNews) Angelina Jolie’s announcement of undergoing a double mastectomy (surgically removing both breasts) even though she had no breast cancer is not the innocent, spontaneous, “heroic choice” that has been portrayed in the mainstream media. Natural News has learned it’s all part of well-timed for-profit corporate P.R. campaign that has been planned for months and just happens to coincide with the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court decision on the viability of the BRCA1 patent.
This is the investigation the mainstream media refuses to touch. Here, I explain the corporate financial ties, investors, mergers, human gene patents, lawsuits, medical fear mongering and the trillions of dollars that are at stake here. If you pull back the curtain on this one, you find far more than an innocent looking woman exercising a “choice.” This is about protecting trillions in profits through the deployment of carefully-crafted public relations campaigns designed to manipulate the public opinion of women.
The signs were all there from the beginning of the scheme: Angelina Jolie’s highly polished and obviously corporate-written op-ed piece at the New York Times, the carefully-crafted talking points invoking “choice” as a politically-charged keyword, and the obvious coaching of even her husband Brad Pitt who carefully describes the entire experience using words like “stronger” and “pride” and “family.”
