Kerry Washington is gorgeous in a colorful dress while attending the United Way of Greater Los Angeles Women’s Summit on Monday (April 25) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The 39-year-old Scandal star served as a guest speaker at the summit, which aims to emphasize the power of women as change-makers, creating a community where women, families and communities thrive.
Kerry recently opened up about her thoughts on strong women having their moment.
“We live in a world now where there are more role models for that,” Kerry expressed (via WWD). “I feel like when I was growing up, there was this idea that you had to be either smart or pretty, you know, that you had to choose between looking good or being intelligent. But I feel like now you have women like Michelle Obama who are just throwing those ideas out the window, and Marissa Mayer, who are like, ‘No, I’m going to be fashion-forward and fierce.’”
