Naomie Harris ~ “Skyfall” premiere / Royal Albert Hall, London, Oct 23 ’12
I was raised within the Jamaican culture in Britain. I was surrounded by these incredibly powerful women growing up—independent, opinionated, strong-willed women, like my mum and my aunt. But what always shocks me is that I don’t really see those women being represented in film. I see a woman who is a kind of adjunct to a male story and doesn’t really influence how the story goes. The men kind of go off and do the brave things and the women kind of wait at home, cowering while the dragons are slain. And from my experience growing up in a Jamaican culture, that’s not at all how it was. The women would be going out to slay the dragons alongside the men, if the story were told from their perspective. [x]

Best of 2013: Borgen » “At the moment we are passing more and more bills that border alarmingly on breaching the constitution and human rights. Bills that are the waste product of political horse trading. They are rushed through because they are too shameful to discuss. The people don’t get to have their say. And it is not just slovenly; it is decidedly undemocratic. Democracy is dialogue. And that dialogue is fading out. The New Democrats will fight to reopen that dialogue.”
