  1. Glenn Close makes tearful women empowerment speech

Glenn Close took home a Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a Movie Drama for her role in “The Wife”.
While accepting her award Close paid tribute to her mother while explaining “The Wife” film themes
of gender inequality. Close earned a standing ovation while delivering this empowering speech.

“I’m thinking of my mom, who really sublimated herself to my father her whole life, and in her 80s she
said to me, ‘I feel I haven’t accomplished anything,’ and it was so not right,” Close said. “Women, we’re
nurturers and that’s what’s expected of us ... but we have to find personal fulfillment. We have to follow our dreams.
We have to say, ‘I can do that’ and ‘I should be allowed to do that.'”
