TV’s White Women Antiheroes Are Promising -- And Problematic
Huffington Post - about 1 year
This piece by Tallyn Owens originally appeared on The Establishment, a new multimedia site funded and run by women. One of the single most significant failures of white feminism, both historically and today, is the inability of white woman to acknowledge that they are complicit in the marginalization of other people. They use their oppression by the patriarchy to justify prioritizing issues that are most pertinent to them in feminist organizing and discourse. Centuries of idolizing and prizing white womanhood as a mode of upholding white supremacy created varying levels of both narcissism and fragility among white women, which contributes to their inability to think of themselves as capable of harm. In October, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg called Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protests “dumb” and “arrogant,” showing that even (and perhaps especially) the most intellectual, revered white feminists are prone to acting far less worthy of the high praise they rece...

'Waitress' Star Finds Strength In The Female Narrative On Broadway
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Much of the buzz surrounding “Waitress,” which is now playing at New York’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre, has emphasized the musical’s all-female creative team — the first in Broadway history. Still, one person hadn’t picked up on that anomaly until late in the game: the show’s leading lady, Jessie Mueller. “I honestly didn’t know that was the case until somebody brought it up. I hadn’t noticed,” Mueller told The Huffington Post. Ultimately, she believes her oversight is a positive thing: “Everybody was there simply because they were the best person for the job.” To her point, few new Broadway musicals boast such an impressive pedigree. “Waitress,” which is based on Adrienne Shelly’s 2007 film of the same name, is directed by Diane Paulus, who nabbed a Tony Award for the 2013 revival of “Pippin.” Choreographer Lorin Latarro, who worked on the immersive theater sensation, “Queen of the Night,” was brought in to give the cast slick moves, while Jessie Nelson ("I Am Sam") provided ...
