Emmy Rossum added her name to the new Instagram “I Weigh” campaign to get women to stop focusing on the number on the scale and start focusing on more weighty matters.
On Wednesday, the Shameless actress posed the question to her Instagram followers, “Want to know what I weigh?”
The post then led people to @i_weigh, where the movement encourages women to have self-confidence and to not feel encumbered by societal pressures to maintain a certain size.
Once followers reached the @i_weigh page they were greeted with hundreds of posts just like Rossum’s.
Rossum wasn’t the only one flaunting her worth; her co-star and “kid-sister” Emma Kenney also participated in the event.
The page is flooded with women listing their weight in gold.
It is so powerful to see women cheering on themselves and other women.
Now, this is a campaign we can throw our weight behind.
