This is not about an actress of color, but please vote against David O. Russell being included in #TIME100. If you are unaware, he admitted to sexually assaulting his transgender niece, and does not deserve any sort of praise or recognition. Reblog to spread the word!

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a computer animated feature starring a black character.

Q
I love your page theme on repressed-memory-emily. Di you make this or purchase it somewhere? I've never seen it before.

Wow, thanks so much! It’s a free theme called “Wantering” that lets you do lots of customization, like a side picture, the background, and whether you want to blur things or not. I think you could probably search for it under themes. Hope that helps!

Brenda Oelbaum said of the accompanying conference:

It was the most interesting and diverse group of woman, Activists, Doctors, Sociologists, Authors, Gender Studies, Public Heath Professionals, and Artists.  With the exception of Jane Brody, as key note speaker, whose presentation was deeply problematic, rude and bigoted…It was a very exciting event filled with new ideas, research and intelligent dialogue, on a very complex issue that plagues women’s health and treatment there of…

I feel so honored to have been included in such a ground breaking event. I’m glad I spoke up for myself and I was thrilled that I was heard.  I can only hope I did justice to the cause…and that I have inspired more people to stop dieting. [x]
