The red carpet: #AskHerMore

ask-her-more-hashtag1The tradition of asking women ditzy questions never ends, first on the BBC 100 Women series, and now on the red carpet of the Golden Globes.

Women are asked questions about their outfits and even about their fingernail polish color, while men are asked about their roles and filming experience.

The Ask Her More hashtag campaign was launched by someone named Jennifer Siebel Newsom and popularized by someone named Reese Witherspoon, who  actually thought of some good questions, but published them in an ugly pink tweet with an unreadable font.

Emma Stone: pink with stars

The latest round has Emma Stone answering a question about her dress with “It’s pink and it has stars on it,”  which is a pretty good answer, unless you were her designer and wanted some free press.

But when it comes to the BBC, can they at least do a basic profile?  If you’re going to do a BLP on someone, you do need a reliable source, and the BBC is in a unique position to publish one.  The press is in a unique position to make or break someone’s career.  Why is it assumed that only the men have a resume?
