"The way that everyone's able to stand up, speak up and get those old men to realize women can do it just as well if not better is really an incredible thing to see. It's just been a year of women proving that they're worthy and amazing and it just sucks that we had to prove ourselves, but for everyone to see it right there on the front line is really amazing."

"I'm so excited about it. I've already preordered my copy. She's a phenomenal woman, whether she's writing a book or just talking to her one-on-one privately. She's exceptional and I'm so proud of her."

8. SOUNDBITE (English), Alicia Silverstone, actress and Christian Siriano, fashion designer on wildfires:
"This is happening because we have a problem: global warming, and we must address it. I'm really excited to see people like Moby posting things—and Kathy Freston telling you let's change what's causing this—let's get to the root of it. We've been talking about this for a very long time, brilliant scientists have been talking about this for a very long time, we have a very short window where we can make change, so we must do it. We need to change our diets and change the way we live. It's not hard—it's really fun, and just make better, more conscious choices."
