  • Meryl Streep as Katharine Graham in ‘The Post’ can help fix #MeToo media damage

    USA Today - 01/05/2018

    By focusing on publisher Katharine Graham, The Post has the potential to shift our collective understanding of women’s roles in media, entertainment and civic life. In a refreshing departure from the shallow, oversexualized way Hollywood typically depicts women in journalism, Meryl Streep portrays Graham as a serious newspaperwoman navigating complex social and political challenges. Her role should be a blueprint for a new kind of popular culture, one that helps repair a climate where, as the #MeToo movement has revealed, media companies routinely get away with allowing sexual harassment and assault to fester.
