Anne Hathaway is reminding her fans that two white women also helped usher in the controversial legislation.
As the Oscar winner noted, the bill was sponsored by Alabama state Rep. Terri Collins (R) and signed into law on Wednesday by Gov. Kay Ivey (R).
“As we’re resisting, let us also call out the complicity of the white women who made this awful moment possible, and which — make no mistake — WILL lead to the unnecessary and avoidable deaths of women, a disproportionate number of whom will be poor and/or black,” she wrote. “Speak up. Show up. Don’t give up.”
Her post included a photo of a protest sign and screenshots of statements slamming the ban, arguing that criminalizing abortion would “keep people trapped in poverty for generations.”
Hathaway isn’t the first star to single out Gov. Ivey. “Shame on you,” Rihanna told the politician in a heated Instagram post of her own last week.

Yes the anti-abortion movement is primarily about controlling women’s bodies under the premise (for many, sincere) of saving lives, and yes this law is primarily the work of white men HOWEVER a white woman sponsored the bill and a white woman signed it into law. As we’re resisting, let us also call out the complicity of the white women who made this awful moment possible, and which–make no mistake–WILL lead to the unnecessary and avoidable deaths of women, a disproportionate number of whom will be poor and/or black. Speak up. Show up. Don’t give up.
