“You might think that we’re here because I was nominated for something, but that’s really not the case. We’re here because Tarana started a movement and she planted a seed years ago and it’s grown and caught on fire. She started the #MeToo movement,” Williams told E! News on the red carpet.
“The most exciting thing is that I thought that I would have to raise my daughter to learn how to protect herself in a dangerous world, and I think that because of the work that Tarana has done and the work that I’m learning how to do, we actually have the opportunity to hand our children a different world,” she continued. “I am moved beyond measure to be standing next to this beautiful woman. I have, like, tears in my eyes and a smile on my face.”

Burke shared her thoughts on the fact that the movement has become so popular.
“It’s deeply humbling. This is something that I started out of necessity and something that I thought that my community needed, and it’s grown over the years, but I never could envision it growing like this,” she said. “This movement is more powerful because we’re seeing … a collaboration between these two worlds that people don’t usually put together.”
