Hollywood Feminist of the Day: Rachael Leigh Cook

Good for her for standing up against the “media manipulation of images” which we all know is harmful to young women and girls.

She showed up in DC last week along with Geena Davis, the Creative Coalition and the Girl Scouts to protest this travesty against young women.

I did not grow up getting told about how manipulated the images we see of women and girls out there are, and I think it’s an absolute travesty that young women are seeing what the media is feeding them…It breaks my heart to be part of an industry and part of a machine that really pushes out these images and propagates these really terrible standards that are false.
