Whedon and Equality Now

Last Friday, I mentioned that Serenity is being screened in cities across the globe, with proceeds going to the women's rights charity Equality Now, Joss Whedon’s favorite charity.

Shaker Kathy emailed me to say, “The Ann Arbor screening raised over $1600 for a truly worthwhile charity and that's just the tip of the iceberg. Most of the screenings are in bigger venues, and the bulk of them begin tonight.” You can find out here if and when it’s going to be shown near you.

Also, watch here (or below) Joss Whedon speaking about from where his inspiration to write strong female characters comes. He's just great. I believe this speech finally puts to bed the question of whether men can be feminists.
