Oprah has never been more proud to be an American woman.
The former queen of daytime talk took the stage as the keynote speaker at Wednesday night’s Women in the World Summit at New York City’s Lincoln Center and praised the 42 newly elected women of Congress.
“And when we fulfill that task of actually making ourselves whole we’re set up to fully express what we know — to now negotiate, differentiate, placate, facilitate, demonstrate, and delegate and on a really good day it helps us carve out 20 minutes to actually meditate,” Winfrey said during her 12-minute speech. “And on a really really good day, like the one we had last January, some of those very skills helped get 42 new women sworn into Congress! If I were a gambler, I sure would bet that these 42 new congresswomen have experience with issues that few congressmen have ever had to face.”
