Feminist Sarah Jessica Parker Doesn't Quite Understand Feminism
Huffington Post - 7 months
Sarah Jessica Parker is on the cover the September issue of Marie Claire magazine and, when asked about feminism, the Sex and the City star gave a contradictory answer saying, "I am not a feminist. I don't think I qualify. I believe in women and I believe in equality, but I think there is so much that needs to be done that I don't even want to separate it anymore. I'm so tired of separation. I just want people to be treated equally." According to Gloria Steinem, a prominent leader in the feminist movement, "A feminist is anyone who recognizes the equality and full humanity of women and men." By Steinem's definition, Sarah Jessica Parker is a feminist. Sex and the City is one of my all-time favorite series and I write this with love. I've watched each episode more times than I care to admit and I am a huge fan of SJP going all the way back to when she was on the '80s TV show, Square Pegs. However when someone distances herself from a worthy movement, saying she's tired of the se ...

15 Sundance Movies You'll Want To See This Year
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Now that the Sundance Film Festival is in our rearview mirror, the 2016 movie calendar has a bit more focus. A few titles on the festival's lineup -- namely "Manchester by the Sea" and grand jury prize winner "The Birth of a Nation" -- could resurface in next year's Oscar race, while others will premiere within days. (Spike Lee's Michael Jackson documentary airs Friday on Showtime, and "Jim: The James Foley Story" hits HBO on Saturday.) One thing is certain: This year's Sundance confirmed that film distribution is no longer a single-platform concept. Netflix and Amazon were the big spenders, nabbing streaming rights for a combined 12 high-profile releases. Yet Nate Parker reportedly turned down Netflix's $20 million "Birth of a Nation" offer in favor of Fox Searchlight's traditional theatrical strategy (to the record-setting tune of $17.5 million), perhaps considering the Oscar shutout and distribution contention that Netflix's first feature, "Beasts of No Nation," recently saw.

I'm Terrified My Daughter Will Be Embarrassed By My Butch Identity
Huffington Post - about 1 year
This post originally appeared on Romper. By Lacey Vorrasi Banis Five weeks after my daughter was born, I returned to work and a coworker had brought his children in for the day. I had met his young son several times before and always enjoyed his exuberance. He always liked the race car pen I kept on my desk. As I walked by the office kitchen and saw him and his kids eating lunch, I decided to go over and say hi. I was wearing pants, a shirt, and a baseball cap with a flat brim facing forward and perched askew on my head -- the same way I always wear my baseball caps. All I said was hello before my coworker's son asked me, "Are you a boy or a girl?" "I'm a girl," I answered with relative ease, though I had an uneasy feeling about where this line of questioning was headed. "Then why are you wearing a hat?" "Sometimes girls wear hats," I replied. Though I was quick and confident with my answer, inside I felt the complete opposite. I felt my face flush and my stomach do that ...
