A few weeks ago, I was invited to attend the ‘Woman Walks Ahead’ screening premiere at the Whitby Hotel here in New York City. Loved how the movie showed viewers a woman’s point of view of the after affects of the Gold Rush leading into the new century.
Jessica Chastain, plays the role of a young Brooklyn-based painter who travels hundreds of miles to North Dakota to meet a living legend. The setting of this film centers around the relationship between the two main characters, Sitting Bull (Greyeyes) and Weldon (Chastain). Weldon even jumps into action ( as any strong willed kick-ass woman from Brooklyn would) by lending a hand to her new companion Sitting Bull, in his battle to keep indigenous scared land away from the ironic United States Government.
There were countless cases of injustice being done to the Lakota people, it broke my heart to see how native people were treated on their own land. Being able to visualize the injustice during those times, sometimes makes you feel like times haven’t changed at all. I can talk all day about today’s injustice system and how it affects the people of the world, but we’ll save that for election day ; -)

The classically gorgeous Chastain, walked the carpet in an eye-catching white and black patterned wrap dress by Givenchy; accompanied by the brands black & white strapped sandals to complete the look. Which lady doesn’t love a bit of bling? Chastains ears were shining, courtesy of the diamond experts Piaget Jewels.
