Here’s to the Nasty Women—hint: you—who speak their minds, live out loud, and spend each day fighting for a better, badass-ier tomorrow! 2. OH!

he said, she said

Late last year, watching the cultural wildfire that began with Harvey Weinstein and spread coast-to-coast, a group of editors from Esquire and Marie Claire found themselves sitting around a conference table to talk about the subject that has tongue-tied, confused, outraged, liberated, and shocked the entire country: sexual harassment. That first gathering might best be described as, well, a little awkward: Most of the men, having decided that silence was the best strategy, didn’t talk, while most of the women, realizing what was going on, were almost made speechless themselves. The only way forward, we agreed, was to have an honest discussion that would raise questions and attempt to answer them. This became the guiding principle of “Sex, Lies, and Human Resources,” the 10-page feature that our combined teams—led by…

Magic Moments I was initially skeptical of the article in your Holiday issue “50 Times Women Slayed in 2017.” I was tempted to skip over it because it wasn’t fashion-focused, but I’m so glad I didn’t. As I began reading about all the instances of women being change-makers and “boldly going where [every] man has gone before,” I started tearing up. Your article identified not only the many injustices women face daily, but the powerful strength and responses of women who overcome them. By the end of the feature, I was full-on crying for joy. It has been a long time since any article moved me as deeply. Thank you. Mike Helberg: Beautiful Gwen!! Awesome lady! And as a fellow Oklahoman like Blake, couldn’t be happier for both of you! Tara Hesington: My…

HOMETOWN: Nashville. CURRENT RESIDENCE: Los Angeles. PROPER ATTIRE: Witherspoon arrived in a Jenni Kayne blue-striped button-down, AG jeans, and a gray wool coat and blue-and-white-striped bag from Draper James (the lifestyle brand she named after her grandparents), with Gianvito Rossi brown suede boots. MAKING A SPLASH: Providing entertainment for the crew, a pod of dolphins played around in the ocean at the back of the Palisades Park home where the shoot took place. PLAYLIST: The actress requested songs by Bruno Mars and Janet Jackson, telling the crew that Jackson’s was one of the best live concerts she’d ever attended. COOL INTENTIONS: “Are you ready to be a cool girl today?” asked Witherspoon’s makeup artist, Molly R. Stern. “I woke up, didn’t I?” she replied. EASY LIVING: “The clothes were beautiful,…

“There’s something incredibly powerful about red lipstick”—Reese Witherspoon Anyone who still thinks makeup isn’t feminist needs to check her history. In 1912, when thousands of women paraded through New York City in support of the suffrage movement, beauty pioneer Elizabeth Arden was among the marchers. Founder of the city’s Red Door Spa and, eventually, the eponymous brand, Arden handed out red lipstick to symbolize their defiance. Now, in honor of Women’s History Month, Elizabeth Arden, in partnership with the brand’s storyteller-in-chief, Reese Witherspoon, is carrying on the spirit of its founder. The March On campaign is donating 100 percent of the proceeds from this limited-edition lipstick in their signature Red Door Red shade to UN Women, whose programs advance gender equality worldwide and help women find their voices to follow their…
