I happened to catch the American Film Institute’s tribute to Shirley MacLaine as my husband was flipping channels tonight. Apparently, she had received the AFI Lifetime Achievement Award in June for over five decades of outstanding contributions to cinema, and this is what she had said at the beginning of her speech:
“Women who speak their own truth will make the world a better place.”
I found myself choked up over her words, and I am posting it here to share with more women who may be coming across this website.
More details of her award and her amazing life can be found here, in the AFI website.
