The #Oscars red carpet is a whole show on its own, but the #AskHerMore hashtag on social media is asking reporters and hosts to be more open with female stars and ask them more general questions beyond what they are wearing.
CBS reports that comedian Amy Poehler started the #AskHerMore hashtag by teaming up with The Representation Project because she was tired of only hearing "Who are you wearing?" Poehler's Smart Girls Community sent a tweet eliciting questions that focused more on an actress's talent than her taste in clothing.
Actress Reese Witherspoon followed suit by posting this below on her Facebook page.
this movement #AskHerMore..have you heard of it? It's meant to inspire reporters to ask creative questions on the red carpet. I love the Oscars AND fashion like many of you - & am excited to share #WhoAmIWearing later tonight. (not yet!!) But I'd also love to answer some of these Qs....And hear your suggestions?! (Share em below!) There are so many amazing, talented nominees this year..! Let's hear their stories! #AskHerMore #Oscars #Countdown
Do you agree that the Oscars Red Carpet is sexist? What questions would you like to ask the stars if you were to host the event? Some tweets on the hashtag..
Oh boy. Start treating actresses like they've got brains + next thing you know they'll have you writing smarter female roles #AskHerMore— ElissaSchappell (@ElissaSchappell) February 23, 2015
