To clarify further: It’s brave because you’re saying up front, “If you won’t commit to inclusion, I won’t take your money.” And it matters because it puts pressure on a studio’s bottom line. Props to Frances McDormand. For real.

I appreciate that McDormand put the statue down, gestured at how small it is compared to flesh-and-blood people, gave everybody a vocabulary lesson and forced us all into a crash course in contract law.

Inclusion Rider will win Drag Race

an inclusion rider is something actors put into their contracts to ensure gender and racial equality in hiring on movie sets. We should support this for a billion reasons, but if you can’t find a reason to, here’s one: it will make movies better.
