Winning Women at the Oscars

By InHerSight

This year at the Oscars, women stole the show—and raked up many deserved awards. Women of color especially made strides in the ceremony Sunday night, with Ruth E. Carter becoming the first African American woman to ever be nominated and win best costume design for her work in “Black Panther.” The trend continued with Regina King winning best supporting actress for her role in “If Beale Street Could Talk,” Domee Shi and Becky Neiman-Cobb winning best animated short for “Bao,” and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Shannon Dill winning best documentary feature for “Free Solo.”

Rayka Zehtabchi and Melissa Berton were also elated, as their film, “Period. End of Sentence,” won best documentary short. The film delves into the stigma surrounding menstruation in rural parts of India and the impact it has on women’s lives. While on stage, Berton said, “I’m not crying because I have my period or anything. I can’t believe a film about menstruation won an Oscar!” We’re thrilled that these women got the recognition they deserved!
