Men don’t age better than women, they’re just allowed to age
— 

Carrie Fisher - Actress, Writer, Comedian

Fisher, renowned for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, always spoke openly about misogyny in Hollywood, issues surrounding women’s body image, and her experiences with bipolar disorder and drug addiction. Throughout her life, she provided advocacy and financial contributions to a number of causes, including support for recovering addicts, AIDS/HIV organisations, and LGBT+ causes

Why does the “strong female lead” cliche only have one look? It’s always a white (or white passing) woman with dark brown hair?


I’m not trying to shit on the movies or the fans, im just sick and tired of Hollywood saying they’re making a movie with a strong independent female lead and me knowing exactly what they’ll look like.
