Supermodel Turned Activist
To Discuss Violence and the Media

Supermodel turned activist Ann Simonton will speak on "Sex, Power and the Media" at 11:45 a.m., Tuesday, April 3 in the University Union Orchard Suite at California State University, Sacramento.

Simonton is a leading authority on the effects of media images, and the founder and director of Media Watch. She has traveled nationwide presenting her views on the consequences of violent media images. Her educational videos are widely praised, and the latest, Don't Be a TV, received the Silver Apple Award from the National Educational Video and Film Festival.

Simonton walked away from a lucrative modeling career after her life was transformed by a gang rape at knifepoint. She now dedicates herself to exposing what she says is the media's role in promoting discrimination and violence.

More information is available by contact the CSUS Women's Resource Center at (916) 278-7388.
