“Today I want to Express my gratitude to the women who endured years of abuse and humiliation because they, like my mother had to feed the kids and pay the bills. The names of these women we will never know. This is a simple Housewives, waitresses, engineers, doctors and research workers. They are part of the world of business and politics,” says the actress.
