Instagram only works for watching tutorials? No! It also works to make your point clear and fight for what is right. Nevertheless, not all the time we know how to do it right. Furthermore, we don’t want to make it something unbearable. All the opposite, we want to make it attractive and straightforward. Thus, we selected the 15 best Women’s March 2018 posts, so that you can make a better idea of what it takes for the coverage of something like this.
1. Natalie Portman and her surprising speech
We all expect nothing but wise words from someone like Natalie Portman. However, we were shocked when she revealed a dark episode of her life as a famous young actress back in the days of her début. Therefore, thanks to Social Media, messages like these can spread and touch more people who can relate to the problem.
Speaking at the #womensmarch in Los Angeles, Natalie Portman detailed the “environment of sexual terrorism” she endured in her youth that impacted the trajectory of her career. @nportmanofficial, one of the actors behind the #TimesUp initiative combatting sexual harassment and abuse in Hollywood and other industries, said she experienced sexual harassment at the age of 13 when her first film, 1994’s Léon: The Professional, came out. Her first-ever piece of fan mail, she said, was a rape fantasy written by a man. Her local radio show created a countdown to her 18th birthday, “euphemistically,” she told the crowd of 500,000 people, “the date that I would be legal to sleep with.” And movie reviewers would mention her “budding breasts” in reviews. Portman said she rejected roles with a “kissing scene” and developed a reputation as “prudish, conservative, nerdy, serious, in an attempt to feel like my body was safe and my voice would be listened to.” Video source: CNN
