Ellen Pompeo Talks Raising Son in 2018 at Marie Claire's Power Trip: 'We Have Work To Do Ladies!'

Ellen Pompeo is opening up about raising a son in 2018!

“We raise our sons to be tough, to not cry, and not show emotion and what that does to men is creates fragile egos and then we have to spend the rest of our lives taking care of these fragile egos we created… We need to teach our boys and raise our young sons to show emotions,” the Grey’s Anatomy star expressed during an interview with Access Hollywood‘s Kit Hoover for the Power Your Worth panel at day two of Marie Claire’s Power Trip 2018 on Tuesday (October 16).

“We have work to do ladies,” Ellen continued on making things better for future generations. “We have a whole generation of young girls we have to make sure don’t suffer the way we did. This is our job. This is our work. And I’m so here for it.”

The day before, Jennifer Garner and Sharon Stone joined Marie Claire editor-in-chief Anne Fulenwider for their very own discussions at the annual invite-only event.

The 2018 Power Trip coincides with Marie Claire’s November Power Issue (on newsstands nationwide October 20), which features the sixth annual New Guard list. The 2018 list showcases the magazine’s top 50 women who are disruptors, creators, and innovators building the future and creating a new world order.
