What do you think? Real? Or MISSrepresentation? Let us know
Come join the Xavier University Women’s Center tomorrow, January 31, 2012 for Miss Representation, a discussion of the imagery of women in the media. In a world of Playboy bunnies, scantily-clad pop stars, and yes, Snookie, is they way women are perceived real? Or is it Miss Representation?

Check out Sofia Vergara’s commercial for her line at Kmart. What do you think of her saying “you’re a woman, so dress like one”? Personally I don’t think any harm was intended, but maybe they could have chosen a different slogan. (Thanks for the news tip, myofficeglows!) What do you think?

Who is your favorite woman in history?
We at the women’s center take note of many, many wonderful women in history. We are all partial to certain individuals because of things they have accomplished that relate to our own lives. My name is Andi, and I am the editor or the women’s center tumblr. My favorite notable woman in women’s history right now is Gloria Steinem, but I change quite often.
