My cousin is a Christian Pastor who was arrested this week for civil disobedience on her capital steps, where she was expressing her disappointment in Connecticut state budget cuts. She sent this meme to me along with news of her arrest, saying that being locked up for her beliefs had always been on her "bucket list." She is 68 years old. Today I channel the power of the women in my family- Jewish and Christian, cis and trans, mothers and children- and say NO to Trumpcare and to ALL efforts to compromise the humanity of the American people. #ohcrapshesup
My sister in law @rachelantonoff made this dress. As a designer she has more wit, style and political awareness than anyone in the game. Pretty lucky she's in my family and required to dress me in fine fine linen. This art teacher chic look has me ready for a week of macaroni necklaces and protest!
#tbt to age 25, season one of @girlshbo, when I was the only woman on a panel about indie film at Lincoln Center, where this picture still hangs. I'd been shooting til 4am the night before and (still living with my parents) grabbed my mother's cardigan. Wearing her clothes always makes me feel strong, not least of all because she's spent her life fighting for women to be able to make modern art the way I hope to fight for women in Hollywood. On that panel, someone asked why there aren't more female directors and a male producer started to answer the question. I pointed and said "I think he just showed you." Thank you @myrnasuarezphoto for capturing my awakening in large format Polaroid. #womeninfilm
I could not be more thrilled about my TV mom Becky Ann Baker being nominated for best guest actress in a comedy series. She is the smartest, wisest, funniest and most generous actor I've ever worked with. Everything I know, I know because she taught all of us little hooligans her craft. I love you mama! ❤️👏🏼
