Well the Queen, Oprah Winfrey, said it best last night at the 2018 Golden Globes. ” A new day is on the horizon.” It appears it is. Last night’s Golden Globes 75th Anniversary was a new Red Carpet reality about the power of women, community, and the joy of supporting one another on an extraordinary journey toward change. Never has a sea of dresses or a black gown looked more beautiful or sent a stronger message about empowerment. The dialogue completely changed from what designer or jewels were being worn to the work that is being done with the newly founded Time’s Up legal defense initiative to fight sexual misconduct across the country. Let’s take a moment to appreciate all these stunning women who are representing women everywhere on “the fringes” of our society and workforce. We also cannot forget the men who were out in force too. The spot on humor of Seth Meyers, many of the women presenters, and then the stirring, iconic Oprah Winfrey Cecil B. DeMill Lifetime Award Acceptance speech to the final award presentation by Barbara Streisand were all historic moments. Time’s up. We’re on a new path. We all also owe a special ‘thank you’ to all these women who are supporting all of us on an extraordinary journey to create meaningful change; and yes, they all looked stunning while getting the job done.
Finally, if for some reason you haven’t seen some of the big Golden Globe winners make time in your schedule for The Handmaid’s Tale, Big Little Lies, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, I,Tonya, and Lady Bird. They are each in their own way an important part of the ‘Time’s Up’ national conversation.
