Mila Kunis Pens Powerful Essay in Defense of Objectified Working Women

Mila Kunis just followed the footsteps of fellow Hollywood actresses  Jennifer Lawrence and Jennifer Aniston and penned a powerful essay that slammed the objectification of working women like herself.

The Black Swan actress wrote a straightforward piece that was published on the A Plus website which is the core product of the digital media company founded by Ashton Kutcher.

In her essay, Mila recounted the moments throughout her life and career when she was “insulted, sidelined, paid less, creatively ignored and otherwise diminished” because of her gender.  She acknowledged that she was “complicit” in allowing such things to happen, and echoed what a thousand or more women around the world may be feeling — that if they speak up, their livelihoods may be imperilled or opportunities lost.

Mila lamented the fact that a producer had cut down her value to nothing more than being Ashton’s wife and a megastar able to bear children through an email correspondence that referred to her as such.  She and her female business partners, who had pitched a project to the producer found the response demeaning.

It was one little comment that was nuanced. As the actress stated, “it’s these very comments that women deal with day in and day out in offices, on calls, and in emails — microaggressions that devalue the contributions and worth of hard-working women.” The actress evidently has had enough of such sexist microaggressions, and declared she would address either subtle or overt sexist comments head 0n if they come her way again.

Not too long ago, Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Lawrence also also wrote powerful essays denouncing the objectification of women which like Mila Kunis, they found “absurd and disturbing.”

Jennifer and her husband Justin Theroux have been constantly victimized by the Hollywood celebrity news culture that continually looks for flaws in their famous targets and worse, fabricate stories about their relationships.

The Girl on the Train actor supported Jennifer Aniston when she penned that essay denouncing the objectification of women. In that same essay, the F.R.I.E.N.D.S alum expressed how fed up she was with the intense scrutiny of  aggressive photographers. Just like Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lawrence spoke her mind through an essay (published a year ago in the Lenny newsletter) and touched on the male-female pay gap.
