I’M A STAUNCH BELIEVER IN WOMEN’S RIGHTS: ELISABETH
Actor Elisabeth Moss (left) says she is a loyal supporter of women’s rights and empowerment. The 34-year-old actor says she cares for the cause, that needs to be achieved not only in Hollywood but also beyond in real life, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m such a staunch believer in women’s rights, I don’t really give a... about anybody who isn’t. It’s like, I don’t need them to watch the show. At a certain point, things are more important than your job,” says Moss. The actor, who recently featured in TV series The Handmaid’s Tale, received flak for calling the dystopian drama not a “feminist story”. Moss, best known for her role as Peggy Olson in Mad Men, had raked up a storm when she said she “never intended to play Offred as a feminist,” at its Tribeca Film Festival premiere this year. Author Margaret Atwood, on whose book the Hulu series is based, defended Moss’ comments, saying the actor was “Not writer(s). Not wordfolk”.
