Blake Lively, Jessica Chastain, Audra McDonald Stand Up for a Cause in Variety's Power of Women

Chelsea Clinton, Blake Lively, Jessica Chastain, Gayle King, Audra McDonald, and Shari Redstone have been chosen as Variety‘s Power of Women to cover the Power of Women NY issues.

The six women were chosen because they have made a difference in the world by lending their support to important causes and charities. Here’s a selection of what they had to share…

Blake, on taking on child pornography: “There are millions of files all over the world being traded every single day of child pornography…It’s so disturbing. A lot of these people are fathers.”

Jessica, on Planned Parenthood: “That’s where I got my birth control pills. That’s where I learned about sex education. It was a very important place to me.”

Audra, on spending time with homeless youths: “You wake up the next morning, if you slept at all, and you’re converted. These kids, this is their life. It just changes you’re worldview. It can’t not.”
