She wrote: "Just saw @Oprah's empowering and inspiring speech at last night's #GoldenGlobes".

But she ended by saying many women and men - some in that Golden Globes audience - will "take us to the time when nobody ever has to say "me too" again".

A statement on the Time's Up website explains: "The sexual discrimination, harassment, and assault that has been reported and come to light over the last two months have been equal parts terrifying and illuminating".

The list includes Juliet Huddy, Natasha Stoynoff, Jill Harth, Jessica Leeds, Ninni Laksonen, Rachel Crooks, Cathy Heller, Mindy McGillivray, Summer Zervos, Kristin Anderson, Jessica Drake, Karena Virginia and Temple Taggart.

The response to Trump's tweet was immediate and ranged from mockery to disgust.

But Alyssa was quick to respond to Ivanka's tweet, posting a tongue-in-cheek request for Ivanka to fund the legal case of her father's accusers through the Time's Up campaign.

Another, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin called Ivanka "clueless" over the tweet.

Even after ending her daily talk show, her influence on popular culture remains strong.

Ivanka's brothers, Eric and Don Jr., were also posting on Monday night, revealing the male Trump obsession with crowd size and fealty. "What does she think this White House is about?" Her appeal extended well beyond her celebrity, some said, citing her compassion, kindness and devotion to helping others as a badly needed change after Trump.

The honorary award is given to performers for their "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment" at the annual movie and television awards show.

Oprah Winfrey accepts the 2018 Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 75th Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills on January 7, 2018.

Meher Tatna, the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), announced that the group would donate $1 million each to the Committee to Protect Journalists and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.

Sanders was also asked whether she believed Winfrey was qualified to run for president. We know the press is under siege these days. "I am being seen for who I am, and being appreciated for who I am, and it makes it that much more hard to dismiss me or dismiss anybody who looks like me".

CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter weighed in as well, noting that there might be pushback against Winfrey from Democrats, given that there are "not a lot of obvious candidates who have star power and charisma" and Winfrey might dominate the race by virtue of her fame.
