I Am Uma

Waiting to feel less angry

Since the latest breaking sex harassment and assault scandals, I’ve been wanting or needing to say something, write something, respond somehow eloquently about a lifetime marinating in the grabby patriarchy. I am still biting my tongue, unsure where to start, keeping the lid on a controlled rage that’s been simmering on the back burner for decades.

Uma Thurman shows us, in just 42 seconds, exactly what that looks like. I imagine I’m not the only woman for whom this resonates.

Thanks, Uma. You’ve channeled precisely the zeitgeist of the moment.
