As a violent far left extremist, I am disgusted with the news about Drew Barrymore stepping down as host of the MTV Movie & TV Awards. It’s not because I’m a fan of Barrymore or the awards show (I mean, who even watches MTV anymore?), but because this decision undermines our fight for gender equality.
Barrymore’s decision to step down in solidarity with the Writers Strike is admirable, don’t get me wrong. But what about the bigger picture? What about the fact that women are still grossly underrepresented in the entertainment industry, particularly in positions of power like hosting and producing?
By stepping down, Barrymore is essentially saying that it’s okay for men to continue dominating these positions. She’s giving up her seat at the table instead of fighting for her right to be there in the first place. This is not solidarity, this is complacency.
If we want to achieve true gender equality, we need to stand up and demand our place in all aspects of society. Women like Barrymore have a responsibility to use their platform and privilege to fight for equal representation, not bail when things get tough.
So shame on you, Drew Barrymore. You had a chance to be a trailblazer for women in the entertainment industry, but instead you took the easy way out. We don’t need martyrs, we need fighters.
