Lena Dunham Says She Will Not Stop Tell Women’s Stories

Lena Dunham, the creator, and star of the HBO television series ‘Girls’ continues to be the voice of the women, through her artistry.

Dunham, who won an Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay, posted a photo of herself working on her computer in nature with an amazing view, through her verified Instagram account, and captioned it by quoting from the pioneer of feminism, Virginia Woolf:

“There is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.”

Dunham referred to Woolf’s ‘A Room of One’s Own’ one more time, and continued by saying that she worked too hard in her twenties without knowing why:

“To impress boys? To buy a purse I’d inevitably lose? To be able to say that I was worth something to the capitalist machine? I now know I was working toward this– a room of one‘s own, a room with a view.”

Then the actress stated that she would continue to honor women by telling their stories:

“A place where my mind does not need to constrict to fit impossible shapes or please impossible customers. A place where my story gives birth to other stories. On #worldmentalhealthday, I honor every woman who fights for the sliver of space she deserves- where she is more than a diagnosis and where she can truly breathe. I will never stop trying to tell our stories.

Here is the mentioned Instagram post.
