Actress Rashida Jones has been getting lots of attention for her recent tweets involving the sexualization of women in the media, in which she used the hashtag #stopactinlikewhores.

The backlash was immediate and in an article for Glamour Magazine, Jones explains her tweets.GLAMOUR MAGAZINE: RASHIDA JONES ARTICLE

“There is a difference, a key one, between “shaming” and “holding someone accountable.”

So what do you think? Twitter was not the best method for Jones to get her point across, but it did result in a quick response. Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with Jones, it’s good that society is taking a moment to talk about this generation’s representation of women.
