Reese Witherspoon on the power of producing women lead stories & that ambition is not a dirty word; Reese is a Ladypreneur!
Reese Witherspoon has noticed a conversation device in many male-lead productions, where, in a time of disaster, the female protagonist turns to the lead & asks, “What do we do now?” This is a platform question to introduce the dynamic ways that Witherspoon’s production company Pacific Standard Film is changing the way the world views women through media.
If you haven’t watched Reese’s speech, I HIGHLY recommend checking it out!
“I urge each one of you, to ask yourself, ‘What do we do now?’ … What is it you think that you can not accomplish, or what is it that people said that you could not do? Wouldn’t it feel good to prove them all wrong? Because I believe ambition is not a dirty word. It’s believing in yourself & in your abilities. Imagine this: what if we were all brave enough to believe in our own ability. To be a little bit more ambitious. I think the world would change.”
