Joss WhedonJoss Whedon - Jessica Neuwirth talks about Joss and his mother
Monday 8 August 2005, by Webmaster
I have just read the posting from Joss and all that follows. I have never posted anything, being from the pre-blog generation, but I was so moved by everything I read and everything you have done to support Equality Now that I have to jump in if it is not too late. I would like to tell you a little bit more about Joss’ mother, Lee. I met Lee when I was about twelve years old. She introduced me and so many others - no doubt including Joss - to human rights, feminism, and the idea that every person in the world can make a difference (and should try to do that). Lee presided over the birth of Equality Now, and she would have so deeply loved everything Joss has done and is doing to change the way men and women think of themselves, each other, and the world at large. Joss is carrying his mother’s legacy forward on a global if not extraterrestrial scale with humor, grace and tremendous talent - touching you and so many others as she touched me. All of us at Equality Now are humbled by Joss’ powerful work and ongoing support, and by your commitment and generosity, which inspires us to redouble our efforts to end violence and discrimination against women. Keep it up and thanks so much!!!
