Turning the Page
What actress Ellen Page wrote today is remarkable. Not just for what she said, but the pure craft of how she said it. It's not just on those who are sexually abused, but people who are minimalized. It's moving, thoughtful, angry, compassionate, pointed and wise.
Thanks to the ubiquitous Chris Dunn for pointing me to this. I'd seen the headlines about her and director Brett Ratner, figured that was the story, gnashed my teeth and moved on. But what she wrote is far more than that, which in many ways is only the jumping off point. So, thanks to him for the link and having me read it.
If you have a Facebook account, you can get it here. If you don’t have an account, you may still be able to access it.
There are a lot of articles that quote from it at length, but they paraphrase parts and leave out some of her most thoughtful societal insights. So, hopefully you can read the full thing above.
