Winfrey’ s rousing Golden Globes speech on Sunday assured girls that a “ new day is definitely on the horizon” when no one might be a victim of sexual abuse, plus pointed to Hollywood’ s Time’ s Up initiative   combatting workplace sexual harassment. The particular stirring address prompted speculation   the lady might run for president within 2020.
