“While it is true that Oprah has tremendous power and influence, I realized upon reflection that every woman can be an Oprah to someone. Imagine what the world would be like if every woman showed support to at least one other woman, standing behind her in some way on the ladder of success. Oprah seems to have the desire to share with others what she has received, and I would imagine this consciousness is part of her huge success. What she demonstrated to me was the power of sisterhood, where a woman helps another woman and others are helped in the process.
We must not fail to learn from the lessons of women who share their bounty of opportunity and influence and power and goodwill. There is a mountaintop with enough room for all of us. None of us will get there and stay there unless all of us get there and stay there. If women succeed only in isolated cases, the professional world will continue to be unsure ground for women in general. We must take the communion of women very seriously at this time and do all we can do to support other women in reaching for the stars. There cannot be too many glorious women. There cannot be too many queens. There cannot be too much success.”
