Oprah made a big splash at the Golden Globes last night.
Meanwhile, numerous women who won Golden Globes used their time on stage to speak about gender equality, giving the awards show the bulk of its most inspiring moments.
Also attending the event were Marai Larsi, executive director of Imkaan; Rosa Clemente, a community organiser; Billie Jean King, founder of the Women's Sports Foundation; Calina Lawrence, a member of the Suquamish Tribe and advocate for Native American treaty and water rights; and Saru Jayaraman, president of Restaurant Opportunities Centers United.

Later, his co-star Sterling K. Brown won for best drama actor. And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders that take us to the time when nobody has ever has to say "me too" again.
When men were asked about their black tuxes and Time's Up pins on the red carpet, some had answers ready.
