Tina Fey Gets Support from 'Mean Girls' Broadway Cast at Variety's Power of Women Event!

Tina Fey is surrounded by her Mean Girls on Broadway team while walking the carpet at Variety’s 2018 Power of Women: New York held at Cipriani Wall Street on Friday (April 13) in New York City.

The honoree was joined by the show’s female stars Erika Henningsen (Cady), Taylor Louderman (Regina), Ashley Park (Gretchen), Kate Rockwell (Karen), Barrett Wilbert Weed (Janice), and Kerry Butler (Mrs. Norbury), and the show’s lyricist Nell Benjamin. Another Broadway star in attendance was Frozen‘s Patti Murin.

During her speech, Tina opened up about her vow to get more women in the writer’s room.

“The community of women that I work with have always inspired me to do better. To be the best I can be, if not better,” she said. “I made a vow to myself to not accept that privilege of being the only woman in the room, to make sure I was not a cappuccino machine and to use any power I had to create opportunity for others.”

FYI: Tina is wearing a Gabriela Hearst dress and bag.

Alicia Keys, Tina Fey, & More Honored by Variety's Power of Women

Alicia Keys shows off her curly locks on the cover of Variety‘s Power of Women NY issue, out on newsstands now.

The other four women honored in the issue are Tina Fey, Emily Blunt, Margaret Atwood, and Tarana Burke. Here is what they had to share with the mag:

Tina on the need for more diversity in the writers room: “I think in comedy rooms, especially, women are treated like expensive cappuccino machines. Where it’s like, ‘We have one. Why would we have two?!’ That’s too much pressure on that one person — to carry that, to be the African-American writer, the female writer. It’s always about changing the chemistry of the room. The more diverse the room is, it automatically becomes better.”

Alicia on what she hopes for in the future for her sons: “I want [my sons] to grow up in a world where they would never think twice that boys are better than girls — or that black is better than white. And yet I also want them to have the pride of their history and their ancestry, because when we know our individuality we can really have empathy and feel strong.”
