I admire her so much. She recently talked about how it's not brave to talk about diversity (because just be normal to demand it) but I do respect and admire her so much for speaking out on it. Sadly, it is not a surprise. I think it's so great and it feels - not to sound too cliché - empowering that actors and filmmakers are starting to speak up about this. Because I do believe, that representation on-screen matters.

For those interested in this, this is a very interesting TED Talk about women in film (or better said the lack off): https://www.ted.com/talks/stacy_smit...sm?language=nl

Rachel herself is not going to be on TED Talks, sorry if I wasn't clear. I was just sharing a TED Talk I found interesting.

I'm so excited about this:

I never really thought about female or male directors in movies until much recently. Actually it took me reading The Time Traveler's Wife to realize the difference between the two and how real Audrey made Clare in the book. I'll always support female authors and directors because in my opinion, there's nobody better to write great stories about other females. So now, I'm always looking to see who's behind the movie and that's why I'm so excited to see Wonder Woman. Love that it's doing so well in the theatres!

Beautiful said, and did actors like Jessica Chastain help you become more aware of it? I admire Jessica so much, she's not only incredibly talented, hard working and passionate about her craft, I think it's so great she is speaking out on important issues. Because I also believe representation on and off screen matters, that's why I love seeing these posts on social media of girls and women around the world, going to see Wonder Woman. I think it's important for girls to have someone represented on-screen they can look up to

Actors like Jessica Chastain but also Constance Wu, America Ferrera, Viola Davis and Gina Rodriguez truly inspire me and definitely made me more aware of not only the issues of representation/diversity in Hollywood but also in the world in general.

Amy Phoeler's speech at the Glamour Awards is worth the watch:

Love how she uses her comedic skills to speak up on needing more female representation on screen!

I'm a huge Parks and Recreation fan, so I love the little reference by Amy in the beginning. In the series Amy character is always showering Rashida with compliments

I have a new username btw
