This was it: Last night, #FrancesMcDormand bringing all the women at the #Oscars to their feet to support and celebrate women’s stories and women filmmakers. From @iamannabellasciorra and @ashley_judd to #mayarudolph and @tiffanyhaddish to the glorious @allisonbjanney it was a night for women to declare: We are not waiting for the world and the Industry to change...WE ARE CHANGING IT. Also, extra 🏆🏆🏆to Frances McDormand for her two final words: Inclusion Rider. A point that actors can have added to their contracts to ensure there is racial and gender equality on set and on the movie’s hiring. Here’s to the day this won’t be an add-on, but a fundamental principle. Thank you, Frances....you make every woman out here want to RISE and remember what we are capable of...what is possible!! #oscars2018 #AcknowledgeIsPower #R29Regram: @abcnews Words: @christenebarberich
