Kate Blanchett called out the red carpet camera for scanning her up and down at an awards show last Friday. She crouched down and said “do you do that to the guys?!” PolicyMic described Kate’s reaction as “yet another subtle moment of sexism that even the most successful women have to deal with.”
True, everyone does want to see Kate’s beautiful dress, and that is the role of the Glam Cam. But Kate’s witty response brings up a good point for real-life contexts when we girls find ourselves getting unwanted attention. Getting checked out in an obvious way is not acceptable, and if it makes you uncomfortable, consider calling it out!
