Julianne Moore Gracefully Calls Out Sexism In The Media

Julianne Moore Gracefully Calls Out Sexism In The Media

I’ve always admired Julianne Moore. She always sounds thoughtful, she’s a great actress, and she has an awesome side career as a children’s book author. She’s also not afraid to talk about feminism.

But while I might wish magazines would come up with some new ideas, I’m pretty sure Christina Hendricks can do no wrong, so I’m giving this editorial a thumbs up, anyway.
