Speaking at a press conference in London after the Golden Globes for her new film The Post, Meryl Streep admitted that the movement is only just getting started.
“The ‘Me Too’, ‘Time’s Up’ seismic change that’s happening – some people say it’s like an airplane being put together while we’re going down the runway to take off.”
“It’s a growing thing, and the most heartening thing about it to me is that it doesn’t feel like a one-off. It hasn’t gone away, and I don’t think it will.” she added
Well we wait to see how the rest of awards season unfolds as actresses hit the SAG awards on Sunday night.
