Mayim Bialik: Being a Feminist in Harvey Weinstein’s World
OCT. 13, 2017 | The New York Times | By MAYIM BIALIK, cast member of “The Big Bang Theory”.

..Mayim Bialik decided that her sexual self is best reserved for private situations with those she was most intimate with. She dresses modestly. She doesn’t act flirtatiously with men as a policy.........we can change our culture, but it won’t be something that happens overnight. We live in a society that has treated women as disposable playmates for far longer than Mr. Weinstein has been meeting ingénues in luxury hotel rooms.

One major bright spot: We are seeing more women taking on prominent roles behind the camera. .......work hard to encourage young women to cultivate the parts of themselves that may not garner them money and fame. If you are beautiful and sexy, terrific. But having others celebrate your physical beauty is not the way to lead a meaningful life.

And if — like me — you’re not a perfect 10, know that there are people out there who will find you stunning, irresistible and worthy of attention, respect and love. The best part is you don’t have to go to a hotel room or a casting couch to find them.
