Michelle Williams gives powerful Emmys acceptance speech on pay inequality – video | Film

‘The next time a woman and especially a woman of colour – because she stands to make 52 cents on the dollar compared to her white, male counterpart – tells you what she needs in order to do her job, listen to her, believe her,’ Michelle Williams said during her Emmys acceptance speech for winning best lead actress in a limited series or television movie for Fosse/Verdon. 

The actor thanked FX and Fox 21 Television Studios for supporting her completely during the production of the show and urged other film and television producers to do the same: ‘One day she might stand in front of you and say thank you for allowing her to succeed because of her workplace environment and not in spite of it.’
