Since shining so brightly as Sophia Burset in Orange Is the New Black (and since scooping up an Emmy for producing The T Word, and since doing such a good job on CBS's legal drama Doubt), Laverne Cox has been using her humor, warmth, and intelligence to pave and widen the path for other trans artists to follow. She's also been using all those talents to advocate for trans rights. Her lecture, "Ain't I a Woman?"—which borrows its title from Sojourner Truth's classic speech—very much serves that end. You can catch a clip of her performance on YouTube: "It is my belief that one of the biggest obstacles facing the transgender community is… points of view that suggest no matter what I do, I'll never be a woman," she says, as she takes a moment to flip her hair. "And yet… ain't I a woman?" This is going to be good.
