Jennifer Lawrence Is Getting All Madeleine Albright on Our AssesMadeleine Davies11/13/13 2:10pmFiled to: jennifer lawrencefeminism14411EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkMuch like Taylor Swift before her, Jennifer Lawrence is the newest celebrity to express her own version of Madeleine Albright's oft-quoted words "There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women." When asked by Access Hollywood about what bothers her most about the relationship between women and the media, Lawrence responded, "When girls are just mean to each other. I think that we're just so unsupportive."AdvertisementYo, I get what Jennifer Lawrence is saying. I definitely support what she's saying and agree that we don't do ourselves any favors by unfairly attacking eachother, but it's always kind of a bummer when women get the bulk of blame for doing what the system (the PATRIARCHY) has told us we need to do to survive since the fucking dawn of Western civilization. To boil down our problematic relationship with the media to Bitches Being Catty is a touch too simple and does us a disservice.At the same time, Jennifer Lawrence has a job that pushes her to operate within the same media that she's criticizing (though she does a far better job not attacking her peers than most). It's easier and safer to say what she said — to which there are certainly grains of truth — than it is to get all Women Studies 101 during an interview with Access Hollywood.
