Speaking of

Quote:
When Leighton Meester was starring in a Broadway production of Of Mice and Men, Meester took the time to write an essay about the story that was refreshingly feminist. She spoke of her role as Curley’s wife in the play and how the audience and the other characters are supposed to hate her and demean her without even understanding why. It’s worth a read or ten.

She does. Especially compared to all these other female celebs who are too scared to say they are or don't even know what feminism is.

Exactly.

So I've reread the piece and I can't really find a good title so maybe some paraphrasing would work better?

Or maybe something about her feeling so strongly for the role that she wrote a piece about it?

I always see commercials for this at my AMC theatre so my theatre better be a venue!
