Rebel Wilson on BBC 100 Women list
Actress, writer and producer is the only Aussie named on UK list of 2021 women.
Aussie Rebel Wilson has been named on BBC’s 100 Women list for 2021.
The list acknowledges those women playing their part to reinvent society, culture and our world – with half of this year’s list made up of women from Afghanistan.
Wilson is the only Australian named.
“Actress, writer and producer Rebel Wilson – A Hollywood megastar who starred in the female-led comedy hit Bridesmaids, Oscar-winning Jojo Rabbit and the box-office hit trilogy Pitch Perfect, who will be directing her first feature film in 2022,” BBC notes.
Her attendance at the AACTA Awards this week in Sydney was followed by some articles questioning a government approval without quarantine.
The BBC list also includes fashion designer Vera Wang and philanthropist and businesswoman Melinda French Gates.
The dominance of Afghanistan women follows the resurgence of the Taliban, with girls banned from receiving secondary education, the ministry for women’s affairs being disbanded, and women in many cases told not to return to work.
