A self-described activist housewife from Illinois, Phyllis Schlafly was a conservative firebrand and virulent anti-communist. She had six children, authored several books, and published a popular newsletter. In 1972, she launched a national campaign against the Equal Rights Amendment.

This year the project will all be around self-motivation, feminism & success.

Cate Blanchett is a huge inspiration for us all: she teaches us to be brave, to love ourselves, to DO things, to do things with no regrets, to work hard and not to think about what other people say. These are only some minor examples of the things Cate loves sharing with the world.

This year we will make a MOTIVATION BOOK in which we will write:

  • Something Cate motivated you to do and how does the process go
  • Some aspects that changed or influenced the way you think thanks to Cate Blanchett (related to feminism)
  • A special thing you did or contributed to thanks to the motivation Cate Blanchett gave you
  • A story of success that happened to you thanks to the motivation Cate brought into your life

Important points:  

  • You can choose one aspect only
  • The story will be written UP TO 300 WORDS
  • You can (definitely) wish Cate a happy birthday but if you won’t follow the theme of the project you won’t be included!!
  • You can add a small video / photo related
  • The project will be released ONLINE

Stateless & Mrs. America – New promotional material

Hello Blanchetters!!

First thing first, we would like to express our virtual closeness to everybody in this difficult time.
Our admins, living in Europe and South America are home and safe, we invite you all to stay home, take care of yourselves and your families. We will overcome this, together, we will.

And now, let’s get down to business.

Meanwhile an unofficial account on Instagram is sharing new pics from the series, the official ABC TV + iview profile gifted us with a new still and some sort of featurette.

View this post on Instagram

The first three episodes of Stateless were directed by the amazing Emma Freeman, who was described by @yvonnestrahovski in the latest issue of Marie Claire as "a beautiful soul, but also such a professional, with a killer instinct." Emma's previous work as a director includes Secret City, @glitchtvofficial, Sisters, Puberty Blues, Tangle, Offspring and Love My Way, and she is currently working on Clickbait. "I felt incredibly passionate to be part of creating Stateless. It felt to me that this was a part of Australian history that would go undocumented or untold. I love projects that shine a light in the dark places and Stateless does that so beautifully. It tells the personal stories of people behind the barbed wire, behind the fence." – @emmafreemanmakesfilms #femalefilmmakerfriday #statelesstv @abctv #cateblanchett @yvonnestrahovski @jaicourtney @asherkeddieofficial

Cate celebrated International Women’s Day at Ardingly College in Sussex, UK. The original source deleted the article, but we have the cache version below.

Lord of the Rings star Cate Blanchett visits Sussex school: this is why an A-list actress and double Oscar-winner paid a visit to a school in Sussex to mark International Women’s Day.

Cate Blanchett was one of the high-profile women in a variety of fields that spoke to students as part of a whole week of events.

The 50-year-old, who has won two Academy Awards and a host of other prizes for her acting work, was joined onstage by a group of lucky students as part of a discussion surrounding gender issues.

Blanchett was joined over the week at Ardingly College in Mid Sussex by sportswomen Sally Gunnell OBE and Karen Pickering MBE, as well as Nusrat Ghani, Conservative MP for Wealden, who took part on different days.

Georgina Stafford, deputy head academic and head of the school’s sixth form, said: “It is during our childhoods and adolescence that our ideas are formed, including our ideas around what we can do, and what others should do.

“The aim of the events last week was to promote the idea that gender should not be a barrier to either.”

Ardingly College is a selective co-educational boarding and day independent school near Ardingly, West Sussex

In a career spanning almost three decades, Blanchett has starred in blockbusters including the Lord of the Rings trilogy as the elven leader Galadriel, and won critical acclaim in films including Blue Jasmine and The Aviator, in which she played fellow Hollywood star Katharine Hepburn: making her the only actor to win an Oscar for portraying an Oscar-winner.

In 2016, the Australian was believed to have moved with her family to Crowborough in East Sussex.

As part of the week of events, there were screenings of The Hurt Locker by Kathryn Bigelow, the only woman to win Best Director at the Oscars, and Wonder Woman by Patty Jenkins, the highest-grossing film by a female director.

Collections were also made for Bloody Good Period, a charity that works closely with some of the most vulnerable women in the UK including victims of domestic abuse and asylum seekers to ensure that they have access to free period products.

Multiple talks and discussion panels were held, including ones exploring the theme of #EachforEqual and the concept of ‘banter’: where the line is drawn between what is humorous and what is damaging or offensive.

Ghani, Conservative MP for Wealden, closed the week by addressing the college. Nusrat was the first female Muslim MP to address the House of Commons from the dispatch box; not only did she share with us her experiences in parliament but also her work in relation to the development of female education in Afghanistan.

Sally Gunnell said: “It was thoroughly enjoyable spending the morning at Ardingly College, training with the school’s sportswomen and then being part of their panel discussions. One of the issues young women face is the importance of confidence. Girls should believe they can succeed in sport – or in anything they set their minds to.”
