"We are learning that the more we open our mouths, the more we become a choir. And the more we are a choir, the more the tune is forced to change."
Amber Tamblyn is a film director, actor, author, and activist. She is passionate in her fight for women’s rights as an unrelenting voice in the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements.
In 2016, Amber co-wrote and directed the film Paint It Black, which has been called “dark and boldly expressionistic.” Her much anticipated novel, Any Man, was met with high praise. Amber’s newest book, Era of Ignition, a passionate and deeply personal exploration of feminism during divisive times, was released in 2019.
Today, Amber is also an avid proponent of equity. She has been a major voice in the Time’s Up and #MeToo resistances, and she refers to them as an “awakening.” She has written several powerful New York Times op-eds regarding these movements, “I’m Not Ready for the Redemption of Men,” “I’m Done with Not Being Believed,” and “Redefining the Red Carpet” in which she details her experiences and struggles as a woman in the film industry.
Amber has been nominated for an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and an Independent Spirit award.
