Amber Tamblyn experienced a crisis of character while trying to break out of her child acting career to become the writer and director she dreamed of being as an adult. After a low period of disillusionment, she entered into an Era of Ignition–a time of self-reflection that follows personal upheaval and leads to a call to action and positive change. Amidst this, Amber realized that our country was going through an Era of Ignition of its own.
Through her fierce op-eds and work as a founder of the Time’s Up organization, Amber is a bold, outspoken, and respected advocate for women’s rights. In Era of Ignition, she addresses gender inequality, misogyny and discrimination, trauma and consent, white feminism and pay parity, reproductive rights and sexual assault–all told through the personal lens of her own experiences and those of her Sisters in Solidarity.
Amber Tamblyn has been nominated for an Emmy, Golden Globe, and Independent Spirit Award for her work in television and film, including House, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and Joan of Arcadia. She wrote and directed the film Paint It Black and has authored three books of poetry and a novel.
