In light of the Emmy's, I am still basking in the glow of awe over the amount of women who won. Between Viola Davis' historic win, "Veep" sweeping up awards in almost all of the categories it was nominated for, and the supportive love of Taraji P. Henson, it just goes to show that women in media are killing it and there's no end in sight.
I am over the lack of diversity in women's characters in media. It’s no news that equal and fair representation is important, and when you write women characters as something more than just sex appeal, it brings more depth to the character and not to mention viewers. With this new trend of female writers in the media, I am excited and hopeful for the future of how women of all types, especially minorities, will be written into television shows and movies.
I want more black lesbians like M-Chuck in "Survivor's Remorse" who loves pussy as much as the average man. Give me more bad ass Aboriginal women like Kat Loving in "Strange Empire" who wears all black and can shoot someone dead with her eyes closed. Give me more women with personality, give me more women with layers who doesn't need a man to rescue her.
I'm hoping to see more women, especially women of color, in the media play roles that are more complex and developed. It's the dawn of a new era in writing in media, and I'm excited to see what women have to say. Here's to breaking that damn glass ceiling.
