Ridgefield Playhouse, at the screening of "Miss Representation".
April 30th, 7 pm
Support our girls and future leaders by attending this first ever collaborative event between the Ridgefield League of Women Voters and the Girls Scouts!
Twenty-five senior Girl Scouts from Ridgefield High School are exploring the voice of women throughout the world. They will be hosting a communitywide showing of the documentary "Miss Representation," which addresses the oft times appalling portrayal of women in the media. This film is rated PG-13. It has an edgy beginning and also touches on sensitive topics, but is mostly a series of interviews with some of the most important women in the U.S. today in the arenas of politics, media, and business. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion of women leaders in business, politics and media about their experiences, and what we can do to push back on negative portrayal of strong women. Tickets, $5-$10, available at Squash's, Books on the Common or at box office at time of showing.

I'm in flight again.” After a long and arduous journey, Garfunkel has recently embarked on a national tour which features a stripped down band – just him and Tab Leven, his guitar player. In recent years Garfunkel has enjoyed a more interactive show format where the audience has a chance to engage him. This tour will feature music, poetry and an audience Q&A!
