Frances McDormand Doubles Down on Inclusion Riders at Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards 2018!

Frances McDormand doubled down on inclusion riders while hitting the stage at the Women In Film 2018 Crystal + Lucy Awards presented by Max Mara, Lancôme and Lexus at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Wednesday (June 13) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri star explained the origins of her very public plea during her Best Actress acceptance speech on Oscar night.

“I’m here to take responsibility for my actions and restate a call to action,” Frances said (via THR) as she helped to present a special segment dedicated to “45 Years of Advocacy,” honoring the author of the inclusion rider, Dr. Stacy L. Smith, and the leaders of the gender parity movement. “I have this feeling in my gut that times are changing.”

“I have been vaguely aware of and completely intrigued by the series of USC Annenberg studies on gender parity in film and television, which were commissioned by Women in Film and the Sundance Institute, but I didn’t know that the author of the studies had taken the next step and created an actual working legal tool,” Frances continued. “If I may use a sporting metaphor: If you want to go fast, go it alone, if you want to go far, do it together. … Can we successfully legislate morality? Perhaps not. But we can ask our better selves to go forward together, to take us farther than we have gone before.”
