On her generation’s social responsibilities:

“If anything, it is so important to make it our mission, especially if you have the privilege to do so, to be socially aware and to help our global community.”


On so-called cultural differences:

“I think so many of the problems that arise today are by these arbitrary borders that we put up, these arbitrary distinctions we make between people. And so many of our issues, whether it is economic, whether it is discrimination that has been integrated into systems, centers from somebody deciding that a difference is worth making a political statement.”


On Black-ish as a “renaissance of black TV”:

“It’s about making sure that we are so intentional in the stories that we tell and that we aren’t trying to perpetuate stereotypes because that’s when stereotypes become reality.” 


On maybe deferring Harvard:

“Everybody from the writers to the production understands how much I value my education and we’re doing our best to figure out how we want to make it work, but I feel pretty lucky to be able to make a commitment to a school… and to a show. I’m doing my best to figure it all out.”


Yara’s intelligence, poise, and eloquence truly impressed Oprah, who told her: “Your future is so bright it burns my eyes.”


Happy birthday, Yara!

But just because she hasn’t said anything publicly does not mean she’s not doing anything – far from it, in fact!


See, the pop superstar – who late last year took the stand and won her legal battle against a DJ who groped her so many years ago – just did something that shows she’s more than just words. Girl took action… and it was a pretty hefty one too.


Taylor donated $100,000 to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund!

It’s GoFundMe page says:

“TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund will provide subsidized legal support to women and men who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace and while in pursuit of their careers. The Fund will ultimately be housed at and administrated by the National Women’s Law Center, an established, national women’s rights legal organization.”


And in the same page, it can be seen that Taylor donated the huge amount in support of the movement. Other celebs who have given donations include Jennifer Aniston, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Emma Stone, Seth Myers, and Oprah Winfrey.

Many celebrities also made powerful statements: From Viola Davis’ “You are born being worthy”; to Barbra Streisand’s “Folks, time’s up!” on having so few female directors being recognized; to Natalie Portman calling out the lack of female nominees for Best Director by saying “And here are the all-male nominees,” the evening was a beautiful show of strength, compassion, and bravery.

During her acceptance speech, Laura Dern said “I urge all of us to not only support survivors and bystanders who are brave enough to tell their truth to promote restorative justice”. Oprah Winfrey stated when she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award that “For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up.”
