In the aftermath of the election, Jennifer Lawrence sounded off via Vice's Broadly blog in the form of a heartfelt personal essay. "Is this the stark reality?" she asks. "It doesn't matter how hard you work or how qualified you are, at the end of the day, you're not a man? Is that what we just learned? This country was founded on immigration and today the only people that feel safe, that their rights are recognized and respected are white men." The Passengers actress made sure to end the post with a feeling of hope.
"If you're a woman and you're worried that no matter how hard you work or how much you learn, there will always be a glass ceiling, then I don't really know what to say. I don't know what I would tell my daughter if I were you. Except to have hope. To work for the future," she said. "Do not let this defeat you — let this enrage you! Let it motivate you! Let this be the fire you didn't have before. If you are an immigrant, if you are a person of color, if you are LGBTQ+, if you are a woman — don't be afraid, be loud!"
