Rosario Dawson has never been afraid to be bold. Whether it’s her first role in the controversial movie Kids or her fiery, activist letter to Dolores Huerta about her support of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 elections.
Rosario Dawson has something to say and she isn’t afraid to say it, it’s why she’s our Spotlight Spinster this month.
Her acting career has run the gamut from her work in Kids, Grindhouse, and the Sin City movies to more big box office tear jerkers like Rent and Seven Pounds. She can even play to younger audiences in Percy Jackson and the Olympians and as the voice of Batgirl in The Lego Batman Movie.
And soon, she’ll reprise her role as Dr. Claire Temple in the Luke Cage series on Netflix.
Women aren’t always rewarded when we speak out, but Rosario Dawson is a good reminder that whether or not someone likes what you have to say isn’t the point, it’s saying it.
More power to you, girl, actually, all the power!
