Miss representation by Jennifer Siebel Newsom( Visual )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the most persuasive and pervasive force of communication in our culture, media is educating yet another generation that a woman's primary value lay in her youth, beauty and sexuality--and not in her capacity to lead, making it difficult for women to obtain leadership positions and for girls to reach their full potential. The film accumulates startling facts and statistics that leave audiences shaken, armed with a new perspective"--Container
The lottery( Visual )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focuses on the charter school experience for African American families. In a country where 58% of African American 4th graders are functionally illiterate, The Lottery uncovers the failures of the traditional public school system and reveals that hundreds of thousands of parents attempt to flee the system every year. Follows four of these families from Harlem and the Bronx who have entered their children in a charter school lottery to attend the Harlem Success Academy, a public charter school founded by Eva Moskowitz, a former New York City councilwoman. Out of thousands of hopefuls, only a small minority will win the chance of a better future. Uncovers a ferocious debate surrounding the education reform movement. Interviews with politicians and educators explain not only the crisis in public education, but also why it is fixable. A call to action to avert a catastrophe in the education of American children, The Lottery makes the case that any child can succeed
