Roseanne on Not Being Bitter but a Feminist

Roseanne Barr pens an engaging analysis of what “winning” in Hollywood means specifically and the problem with fame in general. “It’s hard to tell whether one is winning or, in fact, losing once one starts to think of oneself as a commodity, or a product, or a character, or a voice for the downtrodden. It’s called losing perspective. Fame’s a bitch.” Barr created a show that expressed working class feminism, a voice sorely missing in contemporary television and film. Cheers to Roseanne, for turning the writer's room inside out, making it possible for other women to be credited as creators and writers on network television.
