Meghan later introduced Amanda and the “powerful” poem she wrote.
“There is a movement brewing. We are the storm, the very form of change. The way forward isn’t a road we take but a road we make,” Amanda said. “Forged forth by a future that is female. We will not fail, we will not sway/For where there’s will, there’s woman/And where there’s woman, there is forever a way.”
In response, Meghan exclaimed: “It’s so good! I mean, did you guys hear that? ‘And where there’s women, there is forever a way.’ Truer words have never been spoken. Thank you Ms. Amanda Gorman.”
