Indirect aggression is often a change in behavior, it can be “ignoring or excluding another person from social interchanges” (Catanzaro, 2011, pg.84).
What Nikkie is trying to get others to understand is that makeup is such a passion for many.

Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s Miss Representation successfully conveys the dangers that are associated with the demeaning methods the media uses to displace women from inspiring, valued positions and the effects of it on the American female population. The documentary explores the negative portrayal of women in the press and Hollywood, lack of female participation in major fields, and the side effects of the antifeminist movements on impressionable, young girls that have become highly visible through the media.
