Hillary, Ashley Judd, Jane Fonda Unite at Women’s Media Awards: ‘I Don’t Intend to Be Silenced’
Variety ^ | October 27, 2017 | Margaret Sutherlin

Hillary Clinton, Ashley Judd, Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem, and other media powerhouses had a strong message for men and women alike. As the marquee honoree at the annual Women’s Media Awards, former Secretary of State Clinton, put it best: “I don’t intend to be silenced.”

The Women’s Media Center, which aims to support women in the newsroom, honored Clinton, Fonda, and Judd, on Thursday at Capitale in New York City, for their contributions toward women’s rights.

Fonda and Judd called for women to seize the moment and focus on making lasting change. Judd, one of the first women to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, was fresh off her first TV interview since speaking out about the producer to the New York Times. Her accusations in many ways set off a tsunami of women coming forward with their own horror stories of abuse at the hands of Weinstein, director James Toback, and other prominent figures.

“I was sitting around last Sunday with Gloria [Steinem] on FaceTime, and she was reminding me of the typical strategy sexual predators stick on us. They deny us, attack us, and reverse the order of victim and defender,” Judd said. “We’ve been able to talk about shame … and, especially in groups of strong females, we’re able to take that shame and put it back where it belongs, on the sexual predator.”

Center co-founder Fonda said she hopes the conversations in Hollywood will affect women in other industries. She pointed to Silicon Valley’s tech sector and the restaurant world as two industries where more and more women were feeling emboldened to speak up.

“It shows how vast the problem is. It’s not just an occasional issue with some guy. It’s an epidemic of an issue,” she told Variety. “I want more women to not be afraid to step forward and say what was done to them, and enforce laws and policies that will stop this from happening, and put offenders in jail, because it is a crime.”

“I ran into people, both women and men, who thought sexism, the struggle for equality was a thing of the past and ancient history,” Clinton said of her presidential campaign. “What a difference a year makes. The past 12 months have proven that the struggle is just as urgent and vital as ever.”

Clinton has been in the hot seat this week after the Washington Post reported that as a presidential candidate, she used campaign funds to pay for research into then-candidate Donald Trump’s connections with Russian donors. Despite the headlines, the former First Lady offered yet another sweeping condemnation of the White House, this time zeroing in on what she called an attack on women’s reproductive rights.

“There’s an all-out assault on truth,” she said. “There is no such thing as an alternative fact. When leaders deny things we can see with our own eyes, like for example the size of the crowd at an inauguration, it’s more than frustrating, it’s subversive to democracy.”

She highlighted record low abortion rates, declines in teen pregnancy, and more as reasons to uphold women’s health-care and pointed to conversations happening across industries as reasons to continue to fight. The former presidential candidate accepted what the Center called its first and only Wonder Woman award.

Additionally, the night also honored reporters April Evans, Maria Hinojosa, and Maria Elena Salinas. Gail Tifford, a Unilever marketing executive, was also recognized.

““I don’t intend to be silenced.”

A man’s worst fear and number one cause of death among women.

Well, this should be fun. 99.999% of all the sexual predators are in the mold of weinstein: rich pigs with casting couches who have donated MILLIONS to democrat candidates.

The mud will splash all over said candidates, just like weinstein’s has (despite the lsm’s attempt to jump in the way).

I would say it is fun to see them eat their own but it would be impossible to frame the context.

Ashley Judd says she is a “Nasty Woman” but actually she is a sneaky lying little hooker who offered her body to a troll in return for an Oscar. Now we know what she is and what her price is.

The battle began long ago when people forgot about ‘propriety’... man and women both.

Propriety became an old fashioned concept and an old fashioned word... so it went out the window and anyone who continued in their own, individual expression of propriety was the object of wholesale mockery

Hollywood of course, made billions off of THAT particular agenda... NOW, it is what it is.

At some point it was going to cost us.

apparently she thinks that it is a problem that there are lower abortion rates and less teen pregnancy?????
