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”.
