Frances McDormand was right about ‘inclusion riders’ — young women need more representation and role models

Frances McDormand won the Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role at the 90th Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday night and used her moment to champion women. She also used a legal term that’s little known outside of Hollywood.

“If I could have all the women stand up with me in this moment,” McDormand, who won for her role in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri,” said. “Look around, everybody, look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell, and we all have projects we need to finance.” It was a moment that galvanized the crowd and spoke directly to the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, which have called for safer and more inclusive workplaces.
