It’s You Girl…
I think I’ve talked about Mary Tyler Moore before but she has always been one of my favorite celebrity activists. And Jordyn agreed. She portrayed her in her Impactful People Wax Museum in 7th grade. Standing up for equal pay for women, Mary inspired Jordyn to fight for what is right, not because it is fair, but because it is just how it should be.
I’ve been watching the Mary Tyler Moore Show nightly “with” Jordyn. We are nearing the end of the third season and every night I hear the theme song written by Sony Curtis. “Who can turn the world on with her smile, Who can take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile, Well it’s you girl and you should know it...” and every night, I answer those questions with “Jordyn” and then I think about the song and the role MTM plays and then I think about the Rhoda/Mary relationship (so many similarities to Jay and one of her besties) and then I think of the episodes where she is able to make a statement about gender equality and then the moments where that is all back seated... and it is just a show that we are so lucky was created. I don’t know where I was going with this entirely but I suppose it was what was on my mind, so I thought I would share.
“You’re gonna make it after all”
