Last week I went to dinner with three girlfriends. We ordered drinks and when the waiter brought them over, we spent a solid ten minutes clinking our glasses together in attempts to snap the perfect boomerang to post on our Instagram story. By the time we each got one we were satisfied with, the ice in my drink had melted and the cute four leaf clover that was formed out of sugar on the top of my drink, had turned into what looked more like a blob. This, my friends, is what social media has turned into for me.
Being a young woman can be hard - the self judgement, outside judgement, the wage gap, having to wear makeup, shaving your body (the list goes on). Being a young woman trying to break into entertainment can make being a woman even harder. The whole Harvey Weinstein incident(s) have highlighted the fact that Hollywood is filled with men in high positions who have, and continue to, take advantage of women trying to break into a seemingly impossible industry. A light has been shed on the whole casting-couch aspect of Hollywood and people are finally starting to see that sadly, that does exist.
