Sexy Bratz Dolls Get Gentle Make-Unders Courtesy of Tasmanian Artist

The hyper-sexualization of children's toys (especially Bratz Dolls) make many of us very uncomfortable. In fact, when a new Bratz movie came into the video store I worked in once, a custome legitimately asked if it was a new animated porno he could rent.

Jane Fonda & Lily Tomlin in Sundance AND #OscarWomen 2015!

Written by Women's Media Center on . Posted in PERFORMING ARTS/ MUSIC/ THEATRE

 

Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin were at the Sundance Film Festival a few weeks ago and Women’s Media Center Live with Robin Morgan – and our Special Correspondent, Pat Mitchell – conducted a fascinating interview with them about their careers as producers, the status of women in media, their friendship, their new Netflix series and more. 

In the lead-up to the Academy Awards, we thought you would enjoy this interview and the stories of two successful, smart, dynamic and FUNNY women in Hollywood. WMC Live with Robin Morgan

We are especially pleased to feature them since the Academy Awards seem to have a problem with women in non-acting categories.  Our WMC Oscar Nominations Gender Gap research shows that across 19 non-acting categories 149 men are nominated versus 35 women.
