I know this is funny following a post where I'm wearing a wig and making fun of myself but this is an important look at women in the media: The way the media creates the shape of the discussion it presents.

I'd watch and get ESPECIALLY upset with what happens around 2:00.

Media make up such a large part of the guts of our culture now. If there's going to be a change in our culture towards more parity for women, it's going to have to start there. And it's going to have to be lead by women.

(Pssst. I'm going to go to the screening.)
