Ellen is awesome! Nothing super feministy about this video but what a presence this woman commands. Love that she beats Jimmy Fallon too 🙂
After several years in New York, Fey became the first female head writer in SNL history. However, when critics were apprehensive of casting her because she didn’t have the looks, Fey realized she needed a diet and a makeover.
It was during the show’s 25th season when Fey was able to transform her image and establish a fan base. Fey was cast as a news reporter on the regular “Weekend Update” sketch with Jimmy Fallon, where she wrote many of the segments’ most popular biting jokes.
Love this woman… perhaps my favorite Fey video is below 🙂 Enjoy!
Thought this was cute… In all seriousness I totally appreciate Ellen and her humor. A wonderful feminist ally.
A favorite girl power song of mine… starting my Wednesday on Fire!
I had to honor Jon Stewart’s last week on air with a couple of great clips when he supported equality for women.
After hearing and watching the behavior that Donald Trump displayed on the GOP debate this week, I was utterly disgusted in this man and his behavior. I found a great article on vox.com that talks about about how Donald Trump’s behavior is a classic case of dismissing mistreatment of women and ultimately trying to make himself the victim. Watch the clip, see what you think, the article below the clip brings up some great points.
Do I have any other fellow Scandal lovers out there? I am continually impressed by this show and the way in which Shonda Rhimes addresses social and political issues in such a captivating way .
One of my all time favorite monologues regarding the double standards of females in power is below… enjoy!
For those of you who don’t watch… a quick recap. Abby is the White House Press Secretary. Her boyfriend and ex-boyfriend have both been caught up in a scandal in which they are linked as past partners to a woman who is about to publish an expose on the various sexual escapades she has had with several high profile D.C. men. Abby decides that she will need to resign her position based on her history with these two men. When her current boyfriend seems confused by Abby’s decision to resign she explains to him the double standards that she is judged upon.
A great reminder of how many times throughout the day I say I’m sorry… instead of just saying why I am there, what I think, or what I need.
Ever since watching this I make a conscious effort to stop apologizing for being who I am and asking questions. I challenge myself daily to stop saying I’m sorry for being present and engaged. In the beginning I was so surprised by how many times I apologize for something that I am not sorry for…nor should I be.
I challenge you to remove “sorry” from your vocabulary. The impact I have seen over the last year in my professional and personal life has made a BIG impact. Try it out and see how you do!
