Jessica Chastain is a #NastyWoman and proud of it. We were so inspired by her and her character in Miss Sloane (in theaters December 9), that we designed a #NastyWoman screening series with our friends at EuropaCorp and Refinery29. The screenings are taking place this week with 23 planned over the next three days.
What makes these screenings unique is that each is being introduced by a self-proclaimed #NastyWoman: female activists, politicians, writers, artists, influencers, and generally bad-ass women making noise about issues that matter.
Miss Sloane is receiving rave reviews acknowledging how rare it is to see such a complex and ambitious female character. Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain) has always done whatever it takes to win. But when she takes on the most powerful opponent of her career, she finds that winning may come at too high a price.
“Elizabeth is a nasty woman, because for me, a nasty woman is a powerful woman who is over-prepared for a debate, knows what she’s doing, is ambitious and not afraid to step forward,” said Jessica Chastain to the New York Times last week.
Some of the #NastyWomen joining us at these special events include: Alexandria Johnson Boone, Chairwoman and Founder of the Women of Color Foundation; Mary Catherine Roper Deputy Legal Director, ACLU of Pennsylvania; Ellen Gustafson, Co-Founder of Food Tank: the Food Think Tank and; Shasti Conrad, Candidate for Washington State Senate, 37th LD and; Alexis Jones, founder of I AM THAT GIRL.
You can join the conversation and follow Miss Sloane’s lead by telling us what a #NastyWoman means to you on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. Simply use the hashtag #MissSloane (and tag fellow #Nastywomen!)
We’re strong alone, but together, we’re unstoppable.
