Lisa Kudrow’s Speech on Sexism in Politics in Scandal’s “Icarus”| November 11, 2013 at 9:44 PM EDT
On Thursday’s Scandal, Lisa Kudrow’s character Josie Marcus sits down with James (Dan Bucatinsky) and delivers a fantastic speech on sexism in politics. If only real politicians were as real as this fictional character.
In the series, Marcus is running for president and her opponent Governor Reston tries to paint her as this weak woman, and Marcus has words for him, and sexist men in general. After this speech I sort of fist pumped the air as hard as I could. So great. It’s crazy that words like “pioneer” and “brave” are being thrown around when someone speaks the truth.
This season of Scandal has been hit or miss, but these little moments are why I continue to watch.
Watch the speech in full:
