Meryl Streep, first of all, is Meryl Streep. You really don't have to say much beyond that, but she made headlines after her incredible speech at the Golden Globes, which spoke out about our current president in the best way possible.
America Ferrera has spoken out about eqaulity and women's rights on multiple occasions, and she was a powerful speaker at the 2017 Women's March.
Ashley Judd interrupted Michael Moore during the Women's March with a powerful speech, in which she read a poem written by a 19-year-old girl about what it means to be a "nasty woman." One line from that poem read: "I'm not nasty, like the combo of Trump and Pence being served up to me in my voting booth. I'm nasty like the battles my grandmothers fought to get me into that voting booth." And another: ""I'm not as nasty as your daughter being your favorite sex symbol."
Madonna also made headlines during the Women's March, as though anyone was suprised. Here's just one snippet from her powerful speech: "It seems as though we all slipped into a false sense of comfort, that justice would prevail and that good would prevail in the end. Well, good did not win this election. But good will win in the end. So what today means is that we are far from the end. Today marks the beginning; the beginning of our story. The revolution starts here."
If Alicia Keys doesn't prove the future is female, well, then I don't know who does. Keys was an important part of the 2017 Women's March, offering a powerful speech and performing "Girl on Fire." During her speech, she said, "'We are mothers, we are caregivers, we are artists, we are activists, we are entrepreneurs, doctors, leaders of industry and technology. Our potential is unlimited. We rise.'"
Lauren Conrad had the perfect response to a sexist and unecessary question. "What's your favorite position?" she was asked. Her response was simply, "CEO."
