REPRESENT. at Ryerson

The REPRESENT. project came to Ryerson University for International Women’s Day 2013. REPRESENT. at Ryerson was created in partnership with Ryerson’s Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.

The event brought a diverse group of media-makers, academics and community members together for critical and dynamic conversations on media representation of women in Canada. The program featured a documentary screening of ‘Who Cares,’ a luncheon and panel discussion on diverse aspects of media representations of women, a reception with presentations on the use of alternative media as a tool for social change, and three breakout sessions on:

1) Re-imagining Racialized and Indigenous Women in the Media
2) Social Media as a Tool for Social Change
3) Diverse Bodies in the Media (Fashion, Advertising, and Women in Sport)
