Streisand said: “Women are a majority of this nation. We have borne and raised its children, worked side by side with men in war and peace. We care for the elderly. We teach the young. We pay taxes. And we contribute to our nation's culture. It's time we had a place at the table where the life and death decisions of the country, the world and the planet are made.”
Mistress of Ceremonies Lily Tomlin introduced Barbra and a chorus of stars, including Goldie Hawn, Patti Austin, Dionne Warwick, and Cybill Shepherd. Together, they all sang a new song by Marvin Hamlisch with lyrics by Marilyn & Alan Bergman called “Common Threads.”
