And...to all the women in this industry who are mobilizing against institutionalzed mysogyny #MeToo. THANK YOU. To those who have had the courage and grace to speak out. And to those who haven't yet. Because every single one of us has experienced sexual harrassment, violation and intimidation, at some point in our careers. Because blacklisting, shaming, slandering, threatening and rampant abuse of power have gone unchecked for too long. Because 'spectrum of behaviour' is irrelevant - thank you Minnie Driver. Because katykatikate.com isn't a ballbusting bitch - she's a goddess. And to all the men (not the good ones - and they are legion) but to all the ones who think they can continue to abuse women in our industry, and seek protection from the institutions that are complicit in their abuse - we're coming for you. Because #MeToo = #FuckYou = #NoMore.
