You don’t have to be one thing your whole life!” – Reese Witherspoon

The topic of whether women are given enough respect by Hollywood studios is a hot talking point right now. But Reese Witherspoon isn’t just a talker – she’s a doer. Five years ago, she set up a production company to create more diverse female roles, and she’s succeeding: Big Little Lies, Gone Girl, Wild… Witherspoon was a driving force behind all of them, with over 20 more in the pipeline. That’s alongside an Oscar-winning career, her fashion line DRAPER JAMESicon, three kids and her work for the Children’s Defense Fund. So, if a situation frustrates you, something that can and should be changed, do something about it – that’s what Reese would do.
