50 Best Regina King Quotes – Loveframes

Regina King Quotes: I’m not sure what can change the world, but I do know that it starts with an idea who finds a way to take root and spread. When Regina King made her pledge at least year’s Golden Globe Awards, she was making a public stand for more women in film making. What King knows is that every single statement–small or big, online or in person–can start a movement. And it starts by doing just one thing to help ensure we have more voices: amplifying women’s voices Regina King Quotes

Though I believe in peace, and that life can be good even on the lowest levels, the truth is- I am driven by anger. For women and children. For those who really need a voice and don’t have one, or who are making all their voices heard loudly, but not being heard as loudly as others. I am driven by my own anger at what has been done in this country from generation to generation to my people.

It’s an anger that comes from being unseen, unheard of and dehumanized for so long. It’s an anger that comes from seeing other types of injustice play out every day. It’s an anger that forces me to focus on how effed up things are – because there are no poems or songs or anything else in the world that can fix it. The words of Regina King, star of “If Beale Street Could Talk”

“Last night I made a pledge: by 2020 when I produce my next narrative film, approximately 50% of the crew will be women.”

The thoughts and expressions of the year after diverse projects with female artists have been celebrated in film (women-directed!), Emmy Awards celebrated greater representation among their nominees, and Time Up gave way to Time’s Up, Regina King is proof that dreams can become reality.

Here are her quotes about women’s representation on sets: ”If we are not using what we have to enact change, then how will it magically come?”

“Want more inscriptions on screenplays written by women […] Want female producers to land deals with networks for series ~ want this for us? Even on the 2019 Golden Globes stage, we need to acknowledge the lack of gender equality that persists in Hollywood. And, it’s not just within the film industry.

Data from The Washington Post’s investigation of 250 films found that women account for only 16 percent of all directors, producers and writers during this decade. With a global initiative called Her Story Arc, Regina King wants other key players to make their pledge now to help women achieve parity sooner rather than later.

If a person is going to use their microphone or platform to talk about something, they should make it to be about the advancement of their fellow woman, says King “That’s what I intend to do with my small part.

And at those schools, you had such a mix of so many types of kids. — Regina King
