At the Golden Globes on Sunday night, Oprah received the Cecil B. DeMille Award, which is given by the Hollywood Foreign Press to acknowledge "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment." She was the first black women to ever receive the honor, and she really prepared on hell of of a speech.
Late in 2017, famous producer Harvey Weinstein was exposed as a predator, and accused of sexual assault and harassment by a staggering number of women. The shocking case opened the floodgates; women everywhere were hashtagging their own experiences with sexual harassment and assault with #MeToo, a phrase created by activist Tarana Burke and boosted by actress Alyssa Milano.
Burke was in the audience of the Golden Globes Sunday, as were a number of other organizer's of the new political group Time's Up, which seeks to eradicate sexual assault and harassment in the workplace. They were the guests of actresses who wore black on the red carpet in solidarity with all the victims who have been speaking out on their experiences.
