Reese Witherspoon and Her Friends Are Going on a Road Trip and You’re Invited
If we were calling the shots, all of Reese Witherspoon’s spare time would be spent making Legally Blond 3 happen. But Witherspoon is taking a break from being an actress, producer, entrepreneur, and Kate Middleton fangirl this fall to give women across the country a much needed morale boost.
Witherspoon (a 2015 Glamour Women of the Year) and her multimedia company, Hello Sunshine, have partnered with Together Live to bring a cross-country all-female storytelling tour to 10 cities across North America this November. Each stop will include a two-hour storytelling conversation meant to forge connections between women from across the U.S., including Boston, Austin, and smaller-market cities. And a different group of celebs—including Reese, in some cities—will join the conversation at each stop along the way.
In addition to Reese, the current roster of talent includes Abby Wambach—part of the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team named 2015 Glamour Women of the Year—Yara Shahidi, Brené Brown, Cheryl Strayed, Cleo Wade, model Jillian Mercado, comedian Cameron Esposito, author-activist Glennon Doyle, comedian Maysoon Zayid, Saturday Night Live actress Melissa Villasenor, comedian Nicole Byer, singer-songwriter MILCK (Connie Lim), and Olympic athlete (and Barbie muse) Ibtihaj Muhammad.
Also along for the ride: Glamour. We have exclusive editorial access to all 10 events and will be there live for four stops on the tour. Follow along in our Instagram Stories and on glamour.com. Or join us in person! I’ll be snacking at the craft services table at select stops. Here’s where and when to find everyone else: Boston (November 3); Philadelphia (November 4); D.C. (November 5); Toronto (November 6); Cincinnati (November 9); Ann Arbor, Michigan (November 11); Chicago (November 12), Minneapolis (November 13); Fayetteville, Arkansas (November 16); and Austin (November 19). Which cities Reese will drop by is still TBD. (We’re really cracking the whip on this Legally Blond 3 production timeline.)
Ahead of the party that starts November 3, Wambach, Lim, Zayid, and model and trans activist Geena Rocero—who’ll all take the stage at Hello Sunshine x Together Live—joined entertainment and media exec Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, who’ll emcee the events, for a conversation about women’s struggle to find their voices. Lim, the songwriter behind the Women’s March anthem “Quiet,” spoke about not feeling heard both as a minority, and as an artist in a family of doctors who questioned her career path. “We were all supposed to be doctors or lawyers,” said Walsh. “Instead, we’re warriors.” (TRUTH.)
