Point Of View
OPRAH WINFREY’s POINT OF VIEW on combating racism and sexism:
“I was raised to believe that excellence is the best deterrent to racism or sexism. And that’s how I operate my life.”
Oprah Winfrey is a television host, actress, producer and philanthropist. Her show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, is the highest-rated program of its kind in history. She has been called the most influential woman in the world, and this influence was shown in the 2008 Presidential Race when she endorsed Barack Obama and, by many estimates, delivered over a million votes to him. Her newest project is her television network OWN (The Oprah Winfrey Network) which, like our magazine, is launching 01/01/11. We wish her the best of luck in this new venture!
