Have you ever seen the movie Legally Blonde or Legally Blonde 2? Reese Witherspoon plays Elle Woods a fashionable sorority queen. In Legally Blonde she winds up going to law school and becoming a lawyer and in Legally Blonde 2 she finds herself fighting against animal experimentation.
I am not sure how well the two movies did in theaters and some may even say they are corny chick flicks which they may very well be. But I find myself being drawn to these types of movies. I think I still have the envy little girls have for “princesses” still in me.
Regardless of how well they did in the box office, I found positive messages in each of these movies. Legally Blonde shows how you really should never judge a book by its cover. Everyone thought Elle was way too pink & ditsy to ever go to law school and actual become a lawyer. But she did!
In Legally Blonde 2, she was laughed at for bringing up her concern for animals suffering in experiments for cosmetics. But she didn’t let that stop her. Please enjoy the following clip from the movie (6:50 minutes). (Ignore the silly “my dog is gay thing”)
The fact that a movie was revolved around this very important topic brings me so much joy & encouragement!
I have been in many debates with people over the topic of experimentation. Most people have no idea what an animal went through for the mascara they are wearing, the body products they are putting on, or the cleaning products they are using.
Laws don’t change and animals go on suffering unless we speak up for them. Here is one more movie clip (3:30 minutes) from Legally Blonde 2.
We are their voice, please speak up.
