Reese Witherspoon has been a major champion for women's rights in Hollywood as of late, and the Oscars is obviously the perfect opportunity to take things up a notch. In her campaign to end sexism on the red carpet, Reese took to Instagram and Facebook on Sunday to inspire the media to ask women about their projects, rather than focusing solely on their fashion and beauty habits.
The great thing about the campaign, which has already taken social media by storm, is that it isn't saying fashion that isn't important (come on, we all love dress porn), only that there's a lot more to the women here today than what they're wearing and how they stay in shape.
"This is the movement to say we're more than just our dresses," the Best Actress nominee said on the red carpet. "We love the dresses...but we're more than just our dresses."
