Time is Up! The Dawn of the Rise of Women

When the likes of widely acclaimed women - Oprah Winfrey and Barbara Streisand, could soundly affirm that the "time is up" to end years of sexual harassment upon women and the inequality women face in the movies and in work places across the globe, then it must be taken as  actual that a  "new day is on the horizon" in respect to ending the pervasive culture that has hindered women for far too long.

Oprah and a full cast of women of the entertainment industry premiered the new dawn of the rise of women last night in Hollywood, California, at the 75th Golden Globe Awards. Most of the women, and many men, at the red carpet gala, worn black in solidarity with the Me Too movement, which has brought sexual harassment to the fore from the movie industry to the seat of political power and the media. Many actors presenting or accepting awards at the ceremony denounced sexual harassment.

Accepting the prestigious Cecil B. Demille Honorary Award at the event, the unmatched influential Oprah said:"For far too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dared speak the truth to the power of these men. But their time is up. Their time is up!" The media Queen, who addressed the predatory behavior of sexual harassment, reaffirmed that "anew day is on the horizon."

Legendary entertainer Barbara Streisand, the only woman to win the best director award at the Golden Globes back in 1984, affirmed Oprah's declaration: "Folks, time's up...We need more women directors and more women to be nominated for best director."

A new mandate to change the culture that has hindered and scarred women for far too long was explicitly displayed at last night's Golden Globe Awards. That mandate has been set and etched into motion to transcend all sectors and nations since being dispatched by the Me Too movement and the famous women of entertainment.
