Connie: “He kept asking us to dance with him, even though we said no. It was really … uncomfortable.”

Steven: “He didn’t even care about how we felt, at all!

I am here for shows with pre-teen target demographics that teach that NO MEANS NO and that girls don’t need to be “convinced”–they need to have their decisions and feelings respected. 

As a woman, especially a woman of color, it’s funny how Hollywood wants to put you in a box and that box is labeled ‘maid’ or ‘pregnant’ or that box is labeled ‘just a girlfriend’ or ‘a slut,’” she said. “Women are so much more than that and it’s not even like, Oh, women are stronger these days. No. Women have always been strong; women have been capable and able and amazing at life. It’s just now, Hollywood’s finally catching up to the norm and waking up. I’m so grateful to be part of a show and a network and a team of writers and a creator that see the value in that and see how important it is to portray that representation for women in the world because media touches us all. We need to see examples of empowerment because when we see that … it seems like that’s the norm.
