Amber Tamblyn Is Working On A Novel About Rape Culture
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Amber Tamblyn ― of “Joan of Arcadia” and “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” fame ― is taking a stand against rape culture. Earlier this year, she shared her story of being assaulted by an ex while she was at a concert ― a statement aimed to highlight just how damaging Donald Trump’s “grab them by the pussy” comment was. “That part of my body, which the current Presidential Nominee of the United States Donald Trump recently described as something he’d like to grab a woman by, was bruised from my ex-boyfriend’s violence for at least the next week,” she shared. Now, Harper Perennial has announced that she will be publishing a book about a serial rapist in 2018. The publisher tweeted that the novel will break ground “on how we contemplate rape culture.” It will come out alongside a new poetry and prose collection. Harper Perennial also issued Tamblyn’s debut book Dark Sparkler, poems all dedicated to actresses who died young, many of them feeling lost amid their perf ...

People Are Donating To Planned Parenthood In Mike Pence's Name
Huffington Post - 3 months
Here’s a much-needed Monday morning pick-me-up: Women are donating to Planned Parenthood in Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s name. The donations are, of course, ironic since Pence is an extreme anti-abortion, anti-LGBTQ evangelical Catholic. The new VP-elect has effectively led the GOP’s war on Planned Parenthood and completely defunded the women’s health organization in his home state of Indiana.  “I long for the day that Roe v. Wade is sent to the ash heap of history, when we move past the broken hearts and the broken lives of the past 38 years,” Pence said in 2011.  Well, count on women to reply to Pence’s scary anti-female rhetoric with some humor, wit and activism.  This past Saturday, artist Bethany Cosentino posted a genius screenshot to Instagram. “You can make a donation to Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence’s name and he’ll receive the certificate of the donation,” the post reads.  You should donate no matter what but omg this is genius ✊ ❤️ (Ya'l ...

Amber Tamblyn On The Power Of Seeing Women As Human
Huffington Post - 4 months
Amber Tamblyn wants the world to rethink the language we use to describe women.  In a powerful essay published Wednesday morning for Glamour, the 33-year-old actress revealed that she’s pregnant with a baby girl. The news, she wrote, made her think about the way the world was “built by and for men,” and what that means for her daughter.  “How much do I have to do, as a daughter and a soon-to-be mother, to change not just the conversation about how women are seen,” Tamblyn wrote. “But the language with which conversations are spoken in?”  A few weeks ago (in the wake of the newly-released hot mic video in which Donald Trump bragged about grabbing women “by the pussy”), Tamblyn posted a gut-wrenching Instagram post detailing the time she was assaulted by an abusive ex-boyfriend. In her Glamour essay, the actress described telling her mother about this assault and finding out that her mother had also been assaulted when she was younger.   When Tamblyn’s mother told her mothe ...

Amber Tamblyn Pens Must-Read Op-Ed About Trump's 'One Man Misogyny Olympics'
Huffington Post - 4 months
On “Joan of Arcadia,” Amber Tamblyn spoke to God about the issues plaguing her teenage existence. Now, she’s writing for Glamour magazine about something that affects us all.  A week after Tamblyn shared a deeply personal story about her own sexual assault sparked by Donald Trump’s explicit 2005 hot-mic recording, she has penned a powerful condemnation of the Republican presidential nominee’s unrelenting misogyny.  Tamblyn was particularly disturbed by Trump’s performance at the second presidential debate, which she rightfully dubbed the “One Man Misogyny Olympics.” Sunday night, I sat in my living room with a small group of friends expecting to watch the Presidential Debates, but instead we found ourselves tuned in to the One Man Misogyny Olympics. Donald Trump, winner of the Cave Man Cognition medal, the Menacing Lady Lurker medal and the Demigod of Demagoguery medal, is merely the latest spittle dripping from the larger carafe of backwash that has fed and kept the spor ...

Amber Tamblyn Shares Sexual Abuse Story That Is Harrowingly Similar To Trump’s ‘Grabbing’ Comments
Huffington Post - 4 months
Amber Tamblyn has spoken out about a former abusive boyfriend, spurred by recently uncovered recordings of Donald Trump making disgusting and offensive comments about assaulting women. In response to the Republican presidential candidate’s uncensored comments, including his saying he could do anything to women, including “grab them by the pussy” because of his fame, Tamblyn shared an extremely personal story on Instagram Sunday.  “A very long time ago I ended a long emotionally and physically abusive relationship with a man I had been with for some time,” the actress wrote alongside a photo of Trump kissing pageant queen Olivia Culpo. “One night I was at a show with a couple girlfriends in Hollywood, listening to a DJ we all loved.”  She continued: “Without going into all the of the details, I will tell you that my ex did show up, and came up to me in the crowd. He’s a big guy, taller than me. The minute he saw me, he picked me up with one hand by my hair and with his ...

Watch These Actresses Rally Women To Stop Donald Trump

Some of the most popular women in Hollywood have taken a stand against Donald Trump, and are reminding women everywhere that we have the power to shut down his dangerous bullsh*t.  Zoë Kravitz, Amber Tamblyn, Diane Guerrero Erika Alexander (of “Living Single), Maura Tierney, and entrepreneur Kate Greer star in the video, which was posted on Friday by the political action committee Emily’s List. In it, they urge women across the country to join the fight to stop [Donald] Trump from becoming president of the United States ― and they make some very compelling arguments.  “No way are we voting for the guy who wants to not only ban abortion but punish any woman that has one,” Tierney says. The ladies also point out the fact that Trump has promised to defund Planned Parenthood, appoint anti-choice judges to the Supreme Court in order to overturn Roe v. Wade, and has publicly called powerful women bimbos, dogs, and fat pigs.  As Erika Alexander says: “We’re not g ...
