They Gave Her An Award. And In Return, She Gave A Bad@$$ Speech That All Women Should Hear.

Tracee Ellis Ross' acceptance speech for the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series was the perfect mix of gracious, inspiring, and, of course, funny. But the bit that stuck out most was her poignant thoughts on what it means to be a woman — and, more importantly, a woman who loves herself.

They Gave Her An Award. And In Return, She Gave A Bad@$$ Speech That All Women Should Hear.

"I love being a woman, I love playing a woman, I love being a whole and full woman. I am more than my parts, and we all are. And we all as women need to continue to change our gaze from how we are seen to how we are seeing. We are full and beautiful women, and let us live in that. I love being a mother on TV. And all I have to say is, I hope that life imitates art or art imitates life and marriage and babies are around the corner." — Tracee Ellis Ross

True

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.

Since three coronavirus vaccines received emergency use authorization from the FDA early in 2021, the question of how to get a high percentage of the population vaccinated has haunted public health officials. As hospitals across the country fill with severely ill COVID-19 patients, the vast majority of whom are unvaccinated, the question remains.

A funeral home in North Carolina is taking a unique tack in advocating for vaccinations, one that's striking and to-the-point.

A truck advertised as Wilmore Funeral Home drove around Bank of America Stadium before the Carolina Panthers football game in Charlotte over the weekend, and it had a simple message: "Don't get vaccinated."
