March 8, 2012

Dykema, through the efforts of its Diversity Committee, will co-sponsor a free screening of the documentary film, Miss Representation, on Thursday, March 8, 2012 in the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights at the Wayne Law School in Detroit. Sherrie Farrell, Chair of Dykema’s Diversity Committee, will represent the firm at this screening.

The documentary, an official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. Among those who appear in the film: Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Rachel Maddow and Gloria Steinem.

The March 8 screening falls on International Women’s Day, a global celebration of women’s achievements.
