DVR Alert: Tune in to OWN (the Oprah Winfrey Network) TOMORROW, Saturday, Nov. 12 at 11am Eastern, for the re-airing of the award-winning documentary “Miss Representation.” The film features insights from me, Rachel Maddow, Jean Kilbourne, Gloria Steinem, Malkia Cyril, Cory Booker, Caroline Heldman, Barbara Berg, Carol Jenkins, Rosario Dawson, Margaret Cho, Katie Couric and Devanshi Patel, among many others. I encourage you to watch it on OWN this weekend, even if you’ve seen it before — set your DVRs to record it and send OWN the message that the public in hungry for positive, challenging media. (You’ll also want to watch if only for the incredibly odd experience of seeing me and Condoleezza Rice agreeing on something.)

I had the honor of being an adviser on — and being interviewed in — this powerful film about women and the media. I also had the pleasure of speaking on a panel with filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom during a screening for bloggers in NYC, and hosting a lively viewing party & post-film Q&A at Austin’s Lipstick 24 when it debuted on OWN in October. I discussed the film’s scope and potential impact here at WIMN’s Voices on the day of its television debut, and offered viewers new to feminist media critique a wealth of suggestions about how they can channel their post-documentary energy into positive change (hint: independent media, media literacy, and media justice activism).

Check out the “Miss Representation” trailer:

Watch “Miss Representation” on OWN this Saturday, Nov. 12, 11am EST. Ask at least five friends to watch or set their DVRs as well. Tweet it, Facebook it, email people. Send the network the message that the public will support — and is hungry for — the powerful documentary exploring the position of women in media and politics.
