Elisabeth Moss to lead 'Call Jane'


Having won a best actress award at the Primetime Emmys on September 17, Elisabeth Moss is to become the title character in 1960s women's rights biopic Call Jane.

Karla Welch posted a photo on Instagram of the word "off" written under one Olgana Paris shoe. "You'll have to guess what the other shoe says. our note to the patriarchy #teamresistance", Welch captioned the pic.

That's partly a reference to the dystopian drama for which Moss won her award, in which handmaids are slaves forced to bear children for powerful families.

Welch joked with PEOPLE saying they chose Moss' custom Forevermark earrings (made with almost nine carats of diamonds) because: "We just wanted f- you diamonds", she says.

Titled "Elisabeth Moss's One-Woman Journey to Destroy the Patriarchy Continues", the Vanity Fair piece proclaims, "Praise be, her next project is tackling abortion rights". "Its always a surprise", she said.

Yes, as the star of The Handmaid's Tale got to the end of her acceptance speech, she let everyone know what her mother taught her.

She capped off her gutsy night by posting her admiration for Handmaid author Margaret Attwood, whom she referred to as "a champion, a heroine, a rebel, and a fighter for freedom and equality". When asked if she'd like to add anything else, Moss exclaimed, "No, I crushed it!" The feature will be a period drama based on the true story about a 1960s underground network of women who helped other women procure abortions before the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision. Issues of social justice - ranging from income inequality, to mental illness, to politics, to feminism - also surface through her work in "The Square", "High-Rise", "Truth", "Mad to Be Normal" and, of course, "Mad Men".
