Oh my, Oprah! I’m still basking in the glow of last Sunday’s Golden Globes, an evening filled with powerful, outspoken women (and less impressive men
). If you haven’t watched this incredible speech
, stop everything and watch it RIGHT NOW.
So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say “Me too” again.
Last October, an anonymous female journalist created a Google spreadsheet
for women in the media to share stories (and warnings) of sexual harassment and assault by male colleagues. It quickly went viral and the author shut it down within 12 hours. She also lost her job. This week, she outed herself
and like many other women
, I thank her for her bravery.
I adored these comments
on friendships from my favorite blog. Great ideas to give a try (though I’ll take a pass on the drum line).
to my BFF! My invitation should be arriving any day now…
