Actress, producer, and entrepreneur, Reese Witherspoon is amazing. Need we say more?
Fine, we will.
On Monday, August 6th, Witherspoon attended a Hello Sunshine event--Hello Sunshine is Witherspoon's multimedia company. This event was celebrating Shine on with Reese, a television series where Witherspoon meets with women to talk. Yepp, just to talk. It's not scripted; it's all real. Witherspoon chats with her friends (generally other celebrities) and discusses their paths to success--how exactly did they get to where they are?
All in all, it sounds like a simple talk show, but there is incredible depth to it. Witherspoon exclusively talks to women on the show, and this is because women have a story to tell (and it's not just because we like to talk). Many women have to climb a very long ladder to reach their end goal, especially in the entertainment business where men rule most of Hollywood.
Now, let it be heard that we are not saying men necessarily have it easy obtaining success (whether it be as a famous actor, producer, business owner, etc.), but there are definitely some prejudices. It's the year 2018, and some people still think of women as a pretty face to use in a commercial--whereas men are behind the set, directing and getting paid more. Shine on with Reese exposes the difficulties women have reaching a goal that men reach in less time.
All in all, Witherspoon is empowering women one step at a time, and we're all for it. As a plus, she wore this amazing dress to the Hello Sunshine event which we can all goggle at. Look at those butterflies! Visit Marie Claire to get your own.
