"We here at this table have fought and clawed and worked harder than anyone else and stayed later at night and put up with a bunch of bullshit to get a seat at the table. And now we have a seat at the table. And I get to put overtly feminist messages on a major network television program every week unapologetically because I survived what I survived, I thrived where I thrived, I did what I did, and there were people who helped me and people who made it harder. And it was all a part of my story. My hope is that the next generation doesn't have stories like mine."
