Actress Blake Lively was honoured at Variety's Power of Women event this weekend for her work with the Child Rescue Coalition against child sex trafficking and pornography.
Naturally, you'd think a reporter would ask her about the work she's being honoured for - but no - this is 2017 and nothing makes sense, so instead a reporter asked Lively about her dress - and she wasn't having any of it.
The actress was answering questions on the New York red carpet when she was asked about her go-to “power outfit”.
Really? At this event, you're asking me about my outfit?
Seriously... Would you ask a man that?
I'm here so we... Become more aware, and that we change, and that we build (women up)
So, you can ask me another question.
Later, Lively gave a speech about her work. Speaking in front of a screen pinpointing the locations of IP addresses currently viewing child pornography, she said:
The kids are getting younger and the content is getting more devastating
When a law enforcement officer told me this, I asked, how young are the victims? And he told me infants — and I have a six-month-old daughter.
Lively has long been a champion of women's rights - speaking at the Women's March in January, Lively shared an Instagram post explaining exactly who she marches for:
I marched for my daughters, for my friends, for strangers, for myself, for Phoebe here in this picture who I met as she motivated everyone she came across
My march wasn't driven by hate. It was rooted in a very simple fact -- we are all equal. I believe everyone can agree on that.
Thank you to everyone who marched all over the world. I felt so hopeful and deeply grateful.
Six years ago, Jennifer Siebel Newsom created the #askhermore campaign which urged journalists to be more conscious of the questions they ask women at red carpet events.
Unfortunately, six years on some people still haven't got the message.
