Movie Night: Miss Representation @ Yasigi Beer Gardens
Mar 31 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

“The media is selling young people the idea that girls’ and women’s value lies in their youth, beauty, and sexuality and not in their capacity as leaders. Boys learn that their success is tied to dominance, power, and aggression. We must value people as whole human beings, not gendered stereotypes.” Source (http://therepresentationproject.org/film/miss-representation/the-issue/)

The Uganda National Journalism Awards are presented annually to recognise and promote reporting that informs and empowers the public, increases the voices and spaces for important information, and holds the powerful to account. Launched four years ago, the awards represent a pinnacle of achievement for Ugandan journalists, many of whom work tirelessly to attain journalistic excellence, often in the face of enormous financial and political pressure.

81 journalists were shortlisted to receive awards in 21 categories. Winners will be announced on 12 April 2017 at an invitation-only event to be held in Kampala, Uganda.
