  • My shoes are so high.

  • I'm so short when I shoes They're so high Hi, everybody.

  • Thank you so much for having me here at the okay.

  • All right.

  • Hi, I'm Kate McKinnon.

  • And for some reason, I was asked to introduce Shirley's.

  • They're wrong at this glamour event, which is sort of like a bridge troll being asked to introduce the queen, but, um, trolls, love snacks and green rooms.

  • So here I am.

  • Um, look, what can be said about Charlie's there are a person who's Helen of Troy esque ship.

  • Launching face is absolutely the least remarkable thing about her.

  • A person, a person whose real life bad Asness makes her character from Mad Max Fury Road look lazy and selfish.

  • A person so grand that when you meet her it on Lee feels right to get on the floor.

  • But who is so nice and normal that you end up just kind of doing a little curtsy?

  • I first became aware of Shirley's the Roman I saw Monster, which is, in my opinion, the finest screen performance of all time.

  • In the opinion of many others.

  • Clap it, Ah, performance filled with so much compassion and so much humanity that I found myself thinking, My God, the pain of so many women in this world is so overwhelming that I can't even move.

  • And my God, I want someone to make out with me outside of a roller rink.

  • Um, sure, leases.

  • Finest screen work came, of course, in 2014 when we did an SNL sketch together about two ladies working at a cat shelter, a sketch that would go on to win a BAFTA.

  • Um, no, But seriously, she's She swooped and she turned a bunch of can't jokes into a fully fleshed out drama dynamic.

  • And for that I owe her something.

  • But what I owe her everything for truly is getting to be a small part of her latest, incredibly important film, bombshell, where clap it where she not only transforms into Megan Kelly, but she embodies every nuance of the horrifying and horrifyingly common situation, which is the Goliath that women face when they choose to come forward about sexual harassment.

  • But these kinds of revelatory roles have become kind of par for the course for Charlie's.

  • In whatever she does, she always stands for bravery, risk and making tough choices she does it as an actor, as a producer, an activist, a philanthropist and a mom.

  • And that's what makes her a glamour woman of the year.

  • Here she is, the strong, the brilliant, they resplendent Shirley's their own.

  • This is what a night I'm a mess.

  • There is nothing glamorous about my face anymore.

  • You all talked me up and the most beautiful way.

  • Oh my God.

  • Um, thank you, Kate, for doing this for asking me to be your cat lady.

  • You see, bombshell, she is unbelievable.

  • And she's so incredible in it.

  • It's a privilege to work with.

  • Somebody is incredibly talented, is you and funny.

  • That's until the day you do an impression of me in a celebrity game show sketch.

  • Then you're done to me else.

  • One is think, Sam and everybody from glamour.

  • It is an incredible honor to be named women of the year, when this is the kind of company I get to keep Ava Jara, Meghan, Tori, Margaret, Greta, Erica, Andrea Mirror 1000 times I say yes every time.

  • I'm sure you're all feeling this powerful female alchemy in the room tonight.

  • If you don't feel change or enlightenment by what you've heard on the stage here tonight, then, then maybe you got your invite through some clerical error or you're dead inside.

  • It's clear to me that my job is a storyteller.

  • Whether I am acting we're producing are talking to my kids at night before they go to bed is to create a CZ much empathy as I can, especially right now, and I'm not.

  • I'm talking about more than just feeling that feeling that you get when you look at Oprah's instagram feed.

  • Although, believe me, it does a pretty good job filling the void these days, seeing her hold vegetables that she grows in her garden cradle.

  • It's like Xanax, but I'm off topic here.

  • The point is, we need to help the hard part to empathize with others, like sexual assault survivors.

  • People living with AIDS are trans community Children who are different or who have special needs.

  • The women in this room tonight are putting themselves on the front line of the empathy battle be it's re storytelling, creating opportunities for those who need it most, or just unabashedly being yourself and telling other women.

  • We don't have to apologize for who we are what we are.

  • And I'm looking at you.

  • Megan, this is all you.

  • Yes, every single one of you inspires the hell out of me with the work that you're doing.

  • When I was 16 I was begging my mom to go on a date on Greta's trying to convince the world not to let our earth go.

  • Weapon flames and Juarez helping people vote.

  • I mean, I'm a fucking useless when women of rice is you're working tirelessly, tirelessly at the job that shouldn't even exist.

  • We shouldn't have to be doing this.

  • And yet there you are doing is providing support basic human rights to a group of people that deserve just a CZ much freedom and security as all of us.

  • By telling by telling our divers fascinating, complicated stories, we turn on a universal empathy filter.

  • One that removes all the impurities were fighting racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia and anything else you might see.

  • And pretty much any White House briefing where unfortunately, every time our president opens his mouth So tell your story.

  • Be proud of it.

  • Don't worry about everybody liking you.

  • It's impossible.

  • Wash your face even when you're really tired at night.

  • take risks, radiate empathy like you've got a tap of it and fight for change.
