Ashey Judd hasn't been on my radar since she taught me how-to Double Jeopardy back in '98 but that all changed overnight.
She's now my feminist 'pin-up' girl (for want of another word).
Yesterday (US time) the actress wrote an article which was published on The Daily Beast, hitting back at the media for their recent sprays of abuse about her appearance.
As a bit of a backgrounder, the star appeared in public throughout March while promoting her new series Missing. This resulted in several news outlets reporting about her 'puffy' face.
Ashley reponds to these torts, while raising some pretty heavy questions.
In doing so, she has caused me to absolutely reset my own reporting modus operandi. But beyond that, she's caused me to also reassess how I so much as even look at another woman! This is no bad thing.
I can't encourage you all enough to read it.
Afterall your feminist sisters would have wanted you to.
