Reese Witherspoon Supports #AskHerMore Push Against Sexist Red Carpet Questions.
Reese Witherspoon supported #AskHerMore via Facebook and Instagram on Sunday. The hashtag, created by the Representation project, is intended send up more “creative” questions for women (i.e. asking something other than “Who are you wearing?”).
“There are so many amazing, talented nominees this year,” Witherspoon captioned the photo. “Let’s hear their stories!”
