Hollywood reminds me everyday. I’m different.

Women already have identity issues because of an extreme and over-sexed image of women in Hollywood. Additionally, women of color are marginalized because of their under-representation in TV, movies, magazines and advertising. As an Asian-American woman, I see very few Asian men and women and when I do see them, we are often cloaked in a silly accent aimed at cheap laughs. Thanks to Mindy Kaling for showing Hollywood what we’ve got!
