Carrie Fisher, princess of the Star Wars franchise, has never been quiet about her beliefs. In a recent spat on Twitter, after a journalist criticized her age and size, Fisher retorted with a great answer. She wrote “My body is my brain bag, it hauls me around to those places and in front of faces where there’s something to say or see.”
I love this statement as I feel that it truly pinpoints a major problem. People are only looking at women for their bodies, and if there is brain in there – it’s an extra perk.
How do you think we can go about reversing this way of thinking, to show that the body is the extra perk, not the brain? #MarchforERA @NatalieWhiteforEqualRights
