Happy Mothers Day!

The above video of Joss Whedon's speech was recorded on May 15, 2006 at an Equality Now event titled, "Honoring Men on the Front Lines." Joss Whedon's mother, the late Lee Stearns (1936-1992), helped inspire him to create many strong women characters in his work. And as Meryl Streep points out when introducing Joss, Lee Stearns also inspired the creation of the very organization they were gathered at that day, co-founding the Women's rights organization Equality Now. We think Joss's speech would make his mom proud.
