  • On March 28, 2015, we continued the debate that we started at the screening of the documentary "Miss Representation" about the representation of women of women in the media and Argentine society. Under the umbrella of #WAM2015, we met with a few of our followers at the Libros del Pasaje Bar in Buenos Aires. We enjoyed discussing the issues and brainstorming actions to improve society’s representation of Argentine women.

  • On March 14, 2015, AnyBody Argentina hosted the first screening of the internationally-acclaimed documentary, Miss Representation in the historic Manzana de las Luces in the Sala de Representantes, the first legislative salon founded in the province of Buenos Aires in 1822. When the salon was active, women were not permitted to participate in the political arena, making the screening of Miss Representation—a film that explores the representation of girls and women in society—that much more significant. Following the film, a lively panel discussion featuring Lohana Berkins, a trans activist and founder of ALITT, Laura Contrera, a body image activist and the editor of Gorda! Zine, Graciela Tejero Coni, the Director of the Women’s Museum in Argentina, and Cristina Regazzoni, ex-Congresswoman and the Director of country’s national bank (Banco del Nación) explored the issues as how to they pertain to Argentine society.
