In Hollywood news, Jessica Alba announced that she will no longer be taking roles where nudity is required.
I applaud her decision and the public announcement that followed.
There are still too many movies and television series where a female character wears nothing or next to nothing. She is there to be a sex object to the male characters and the male viewers. She does not have any intelligence or any ambitions or goals. She may as well be a walking and talking mannequin.
As a mother of young girls and as a performer whose fanbase includes young women, I applaud Ms. Alba’s decision. It’s time to see more female characters using the education, their intelligence and the experience to get by. Perhaps with this announcement, other actresses will do the same and change the way women are portrayed on screen.
