Kerry Washington is using her TV megastardom to power her most political project to date, Confirmation, the HBO film she not only stars in—as Anita Hill—but also executive produced.
Kerry Washington: Why She Decided to Executive Produce Her New HBO Film, ‘Confirmation’
In the April issue of ELLE, Washington talks about everything from how she’s handling motherhood to why she feels it’s important to create work for herself instead of putting her artistic destiny in someone else’s hands to the reason Anita Hill’s story matters today.
Here’s, a peek at what she has to say.
ON THE IMPORTANCE OF THE EVENTS THAT INSPIRED ‘CONFIRMATION’
“This moment was so important because it created a language around women being able to protect themselves. The behavior that Anita Hill described was going on in a lot of offices throughout the country, and most people didn’t think they were doing anything wrong. But this created awareness around that and around the need for women’s voices to be heard in our public spaces, both testifying before Congress and sitting on the committee. It really was such a huge cultural shift.”
