Gender equality is on trend and Regina King intends to stay in style.

The Seven Seconds actress took to the stage at the Beverley Hills Hotel on Sunday as she won the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for If Beale Street Could Talk.

During her acceptance speech, the 47-year-old vowed to do her part to represent the sexes in film.

“I just want to say that I’m going to use my platform right now to say that in the next two years everything I produce — I’m making a vow, and it’s going to be tough, to make sure everything I produce is 50 percent women,” she said. “And I challenge anyone that’s out there, who is in a position of power, not just in our industry, all industries, I challenge you to challenge yourselves and stand with us in solidarity and do the same.”

According to IMDB, Regina’s next producing projects include Warrior about a semi-retired NFL Player and a high school principal, and No Safe Place about the affect of child murders on an Atlanta community during the 1970s.
