Jennifer Lawrence may not be happy, but shes hopeful.
The actress responded to President-elect Donald Trumps victory, in an essay posted Thursday morning that she wrote for Broadly, Vices womens interest channel. In it, Lawrence asks Americans to think long and hard about the state of the country, and to not place blame on others for Hillary Clintons defeat.
I want to be positive; I want to support our democracy, but what can we take away from this? Its a genuine question that we all need to ask ourselves, writes the Oscar-winning actress. We shouldnt blame anyone, we shouldnt riot in the streets. We should think strongly and clearly about what to do next because we cannot change the past.
As an outspoken opponent of Trump, Lawrence wrote that women must work exponentially harder than their male counterparts in order to be heard and taken seriously.
