Miss Representation Screening

We are so excited to announce the upcoming screening of the award winning documentary Miss Representation.

Miss Representation explores how the media’s misrepresentations of women have led to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence.

The screening will be followed by a dynamic panel discussion, drinks and nibbles.

As always, our fabulous gift bags will be available for all who attend.

We are pleased to announce the launch of our charity partnership with Aim for The Stars, and will be donating $5 of every ticket purchased.

The event will be hosted by the delightful Bree Laughlin, the Face of Caulfield, and we have put together an exciting panel to discuss Miss Representation following the screening. Our panelists:

Kerry Chikarovski – Board Member, Consultant, Former Politician

One of the country’s most recognised, former female politicians, Kerry Chikarovski began her career as a solicitor before making the decision to enter parliament. Her political journey saw her appointed as the first Minister for the Status of Women in NSW, and ultimately go on to be elected Leader of the NSW Parliamentary Liberal Party, the first woman to lead a major political party in NSW.

After retiring from politics, Kerry established her own consultancy business, Chikarovski & Associates, and in 2004 she co-authored her autobiography, “Chika” which has been described as a compellingly honest description of her personal and political life.

Isabelle Oderberg – Social Media Editor, Herald Sun

After growing up in Hong Kong, Isabelle Oderberg started her career in Melbourne briefly before moving to London and working in the financial trade press, then for Reuters and Dow Jones. She moved back to Australia in 2006 and was the mining writer for AAP before becoming the founding news editor at Business Spectator, then interviews editor and China commentator. She joined the Herald Sun in 2009 and was the deputy business editor before becoming Australia’s first social media editor.

Elise Swallow – Business Owner, Learning Fundamentals

One of Australia’s leading speech pathologists, specialising in children with learning disabilities, Elise is the founder of The Voice Within and works alongside Jacinta McMahon at Learning Fundamentals. Elise is also a footballer’s wife, married to Andrew Swallow, captain of North Melbourne. Seeking self-employment as a graduate, Elise has paved her own pathway, developing her own prominent career in which she has achieved succes in her own right, however this is often overshadowed by the societal stigma of being married to a high-profile footballer.

    This incredible event from the League of Extraodinary Women will highlight the Miss Representation of women in Media. We need to change how we view ourselves in order to change how the media and the world view us. I’m so interested to see this film.
