Friday Night Lights star Connie Britton is constantly asked how she gets her hair so shiny, bouncy and perfect. In a new video, she finally reveals her beauty secret: feminism.
The video is part of the Representation Project‘s #AskHerMore campaign, which encourages reporters to ask women substantial questions about their accomplishments, rather than questions about their appearance. Britton teamed up with her Nashville co-star Laura Benanti, who wrote, directed and co-produced the video. (She also appears in it towards the end.)
“When used regularly, feminism has been known to produce amazing results,” Britton says. For example: a woman’s right to vote, a woman’s right to her own body, a woman’s right to become a kickass athlete, the Violence Against Women Act and more.
“The message of the video is: ‘Don’t be afraid of feminism,'” Britton told People. “Don’t think that feminism is something that you don’t need or something that could be threatening, because look at what it’s created already and look at what it can continue to create.”
