Regina King To Employ At Least 50 Percent Women On All Her Future Projects
Regina King is using her platform for good.
After winning a Golden Globe award for best performance by an actress in a supporting role for If Beale Street Could Talk, the actress delivered an inspirational speech, vowing to employ more women on the projects she produces and encouraging others in power to do the same.
“The reason why we do this is because we understand that our microphones are big and we are speaking for everyone,” she said. “And I just want to say that I’m going to use my platform right now to say in the next two years, everything that I produce, I’m making a vow — it’s going to be tough — to make sure that everything that I produce that is 50 percent women.”
“And I just challenge anyone out there — anyone out there who is in a position of power, not just in our industry, in all industries — I challenge you to challenge yourselves and stand with us in solidarity and do the same,” she concluded.
Yes, Regina. Yes!
