Finals are hard

Hey Feminist Felines!

I wanted to apologize for not posting recently. I've been crazy busy with final projects, exams, and I worked all of Black Friday weekend (#slayme).

So instead of writing a whole post this week, I'm going to suggest that you all check out this preview for "The Mask You Live In," the newest documentary by Jennifer Siebel Newsom and The Representation Project. The Representation Project (formally called is an organization that works towards ending unfair representations of men and women in the media. Two summers ago, I participated in their "#KeepItReal Challenge," asking women's magazines to stop using Photoshop to unrealistically alter the bodies of their models.

Newsom's first documentary, "Miss Representation" received critical acclaim for its examination of the media and how it represents women. "The Mask You Live In" analyzes how the media represents men and how societal pressures to be masculine can negatively affect young men and boys.

Here's a preview:

I'm really excited for the documentary to come out and will be sure to notify you all on its release date!

Talk to you all soon!
