Reese Witherspoon called bullshit on Hollywood Monday night, at Glamour's annual Women of the Year Awards. Girlfriend called out ageism and sexism in the industry #likeaboss.
And she's got the accolades to go there: Reese was being honored that night for her new fashion line Draper James and her production company Pacific Standard, which produced two little films you may have heard of: Gone Girl and Wild.
Here's just a few gems from her speech:
"Ladies and gentlemen, I think we are in a cultural crisis in every field, in every industry. Women are underrepresented and underpaid in leadership positions. No wonder we don't have the healthcare we deserve or paid family leave or public access to early childhood education. And that really worries me. How can we expect legislation with our rights and needs being preserved if we don't have equal representation?"
"Films with women at the center are not a public service project. They are a big-time, bottom line-enhancing, money-making commodity."
Or my personal favorite:
Reese, I loved you as Elle Woods and I love you now. Keep on doing you, sister.
