Hollywood Feminist of the Day: Mariska Hargitay

Mariska founded the charity Joyful Heart Foundation which is up for a $500,000 Chase Community Giving Grant. Joyful Heart’s mission is to heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse and to shed light into the darkness that surrounds these issues. They also have a website that is educating people and advocating to change the unbelievable backlog of rape kits that have not been tested.

You can help them get this grant. Vote here by May 25. Here’s a message from Mariska Hargitay.
