Bustle Magazine reports:
While all of the issues the film addresses are topical for anyone in any stage of life, they are especially important to Mulligan now, who just had her first child, a girl, with husband Marcus Mumford. “Had I had a boy or a girl, it’s sort of… What I love about the film is that my character has a son,” she says. “An easy choice would have been for her to have a daughter, and then all her choices would have been made because she knew was going to make a better life for her daughter. But she makes those choices because she wants to build a better society for her son. That message, that feminism — or equality — isn’t just for girls. It should be everyone’s issue.”
How about we don’t?
