Kerry Washington Calls On Women To Support Each Other At Sundance!

Fresh from the 2017 Women’s March, Kerry Washington is using her voice to speak up for women!

While speaking to a group of women at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival‘s annual Women in Film Brunch co-hosted by Refinery29 on Monday (January 23), the 39-year-old Scandal star told guests that progress is going to take “courage on all of our parts.”

“Sometimes the people who are in charge of those rooms, they want us to feel lucky to be in the room. And we are because we’re all really blessed to be doing what we do…but that doesn’t mean that I don’t get to bring other people with me,” Kerry expressed (via NYDaily). “Being alone in the room is exhausting…you feel like you have to stand up for the entire gender or race. A woman who shouts out other women? That’s just something we all have to do.”

Kerry also talked about making it a priority to hire other women, people of color and people of the LGBTQ community to work on their sets, adding: “(It’s) making sure people in society who we’ve labeled as other have a seat at the table.”

That same day, Kerry stopped by the Crown Heights premiere at Library Center Theater to show her support for the cast and crew.

FYI: Kerry is wearing Pour La Victoire boots and a Maje sweater.
