CHC Breakfast:
The Mask You Live In
with Jennifer Siebel Newsom

The Mask You Live In

Join Children’s Health Council and The Representation Project’s founder and film director Jennifer Siebel Newsom for an interactive discussion and viewing of the documentary: The Mask You Live In.

Compared to girls, research shows that boys in the U.S. are more likely to be diagnosed with a behavior disorder, prescribed stimulant medications, fail out of school, binge drink, commit a violent crime, and/or take their own lives.

CHC and The Mask You Live In ask: 

As a community, how are we failing our boys and what can we do to help them? Take part in the conversation.

Newsom wrote, directed, and produced the 2011 Sundance documentary Miss Representation.

She is currently writing, directing, and producing two documentaries, The Mask You Live In and The Great American Lie, which explore how our culture’s narrow definition of masculinity is harming our boys, men, and society at large.
