The award show season is always entertaining but this year has been especially amazing, as women all over the world have joined together to make a statement to the men out there (Donald Trump in particular) who think it’s perfectly fine to victimize them in the most disgusting and dehumanizing ways possible.
Recently at the Golden Globe Awards, men and women all attended wearing black and many wore #TimesUp pins in solidarity with the #MeToo movement started by Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, and countless other women who have been assaulted and shamed by men who they expected would remain professional during casting calls, and on movie sets, etc.
The solidarity of the Hollywood community has even flowed to the annual Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) Awards, where actress Kristen Bell was given the honor as not only the first HOST of the show, but the first WOMAN to host the show. Being the quick wit that she is, Bell was fast to point out that fact in her opening monologue where she took a few jabs at Melania Trump in the process.
There has never been a host for this award show before. Yep, first time, first person, first lady. And I honestly never thought that I would grow up to be the first lady. But you know what? I kind of like it. I think my first initiative as first lady will be cyberbullying, because I have yet to see any progress made on that problem quite yet.”
Bell gets serious and continues:
Everyone’s story deserves to be told, especially now. We are living in a watershed moment in time and as we march forward with active momentum and open ears, let’s make sure we are leading the charge with empathy and diligence, because fear and anger never win the race.”

Bell is absolutely right. Nothing is being accomplished in this White House, especially now. This has to change. Vote BLUE in November!
