Before TMB was born, we watched Miss Representation, a documentary about the representation of women in mass media. The documentary was made in 2011 by Jennifer Siebel and premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Despite being around for a while, we think it’s really important to share and get people thinking about the way the media portrays women. It’s a really empowering documentary in terms of getting young women to challenge media and stereotypes.
After watching the documentary, we felt really inspired to do something and it influenced us in a positive way. Miss Representation was a huge contributing factor to why we decided to create TMB!
