Gender stereotypes in media can be very confusing...or accurate! I DO love to drink wine with my friends and complain about men! Shoes really ARE my favorite things (don't tell my kids)! Pillow Fights? Sign me up!!!
...maybe not the last one, because basically anything that takes physical effort is not for me.
And I LOVE to shop! My favorite thing to shop for is quality television. It's true! As a (sometimes) producer of television, I like to shop for great ideas, scripts, writers, and, in general, amazing people who will do most of the creative work for me and let me sit back and count the cash.
One afternoon, while sitting around drinking wine with friends and complaining about men, my friend Jenni had an idea to start a list - an online shopping portal, if you will - for quality female driven material in television.
"Let's ask a bunch of people who run shit in Hollywood what scripts they like, but that never got made, and then put them all in one place. Then other people will buy those scripts and put them on TV and we can watch better TV!"
And thus The 2015 WriteHerList was born. If you're like me and you like to shop and make good TV that improves the balance of women in media, then come check out WeForShe.org's WriteHerList.
If you're not like me and don't make TV, then go to your Pilates class, get a blow-out, and check back in here next week where we can talk about measles and peanut butter!
