Amber Tamblyn invented the perfect word for today’s women’s revolution.

A bunch of badass females brunched together in L.A. on Feb. 27, hungry for change in Washington come November.

Over poached eggs and avocado toast, girls like former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, former Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Elaine Welteroth, and comedian Chelsea Handler zeroed in on a shared objective for 2018: Get more progressive girls from diverse backgrounds elected to public office .

Actress Amber Tamblyn was one of the panelists at the Resist, Run, Win, pre-Oscars Brunch, organized by advocacy group Emily’s List.

And while she was on stage, her confident, candid commentaries truly sent the room abuzz with laughs, applause, and approving hell yeahs .

“We’re in the midst of a revolution, ” Tamblyn said to applause , noting the importance of calling the movement what it is. “All these women who paved the style and worked their fucking asses off to make sure we can sit in rooms like this and … say, ‘No, equality is now the norm.’ This is how things go forward. And we’re not asking you anymore. We’re saying, ‘This is the way it runs, period.’ And you’re either with us or you’re against us.”

Tamblyn pointed out how men can be great allies too — by basically getting out of the way.

“We need[ male friends] to get out of our way, in the best possible sense, ” Tamblyn said to giggles and applause. “When we figure out what we want for ourselves — for our bodies, for the workplace, for power positions, for what we deserve to get paid — we’re going to come to you and ask you to support us. And that’s when you’re going to step in line and become members of what we’re doing.”

The actress also proposed a word she coined that nails how females can get the most done: Be “angranized.”

“I’ve said it before and I think this is really true, ” she said. “When females are angry and women are organized, we’re ‘angranized.’ We’re a good combination of those two things. And that is the most dangerous thing this country has to offer –‘ angranized’ women.”

Judging by the record-high number of progressive females running for office — and winning when they do — it sure sounds like Tamblyn’s on to something.
