This has all stemmed from Winfrey's upon accepting the Cecil B. DeMille award at this year's Golden Globes.
In a nod to female designers, the legend wore Sophia Webster's black velvet Coco crystal pumps and a Versace dress to accept the honor.
Winfrey said she's the first black woman to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award, a moment that made her think of the young girls watching her from home tonight.
In the first award show of post-Harvey Weinstein scandal, Oprah talked about a "new day on the horizon" in which no one will have to say "Me Too.' "For too long women have lived in a culture broken by brutally powerful men".
Winfrey also brought up Recy Taylor, an African American woman who was abducted and raped by six white men in 1944.
Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Meher Tatna said Winfrey deserved the award for her "unparalleled connection with people around the world".
Finally, she thanked "all of the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories" of harassment and abuse, making special mention of the women whose stories we will never hear: domestic workers, farm workers, workers in factories, restaurants and academia, women in sports and technology and engineering, athletes and soldiers.
HollywoodLifers, how do YOU feel about Oprah's speech?
The multi-hyphenate's powerful speech resonated at the Golden Globes, the first major event in the annual awards season, since Hollywood began dealing with revelations of rampant sexual harassment and abuse of women in the entertainment industry, and beyond. "It's one that transcends any culture, geography, race, religion, politics or workplace". Women, she said, like her mother, with "children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue". "I had never seen a black man recognized like that before". The single greatest wisdom I received, other than what I already told you, is that the key to fulfillment, success, and contentment in life is aligning your personality with what your soul came to do. when you can use your personality to serve what that thing is, you can be successful.
Winfrey's speech, crafted in the spirit of the evening and delivered with a stirring and unimpeachable passion, rallied others to continue speaking up and out against injustice and referenced Sidney Poitier, Rosa Parks, Recy Taylor and the #TimesUp movement.
