Women's stories dominated the Golden Globes
In case you missed it, women's stories dominated the Golden Globes the other night.
The #metoo and #timeisup movements dominated coverage of the awards. On stage, stories about women were honored, including Handmaid's Tale, Big Little Lies and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. And the women themselves who were honored used their speeches to amplify the #timeisup message and to address more generally the importance of telling women's stories.
If you haven't seen Oprah's righteous speech, do yourself a favor and watch it now. It will fire you up.
Elisabeth Moss won best actress in a TV drama for her role in The Handmaid's Tale, and I loved what she said in her acceptance speech about women writing our own stories:
As Oprah said, speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And no one else can speak it for us.
