There are 35,000 museums in the United States alone, and yet somehow we’ve yet to dedicate even one of these solely to women’s history. This afternoon, The Montage Beverly Hills was the setting for a group of notable ladies rallying to change that fact. Rachel Zoe, Abigail Breslin, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Toni Ko all received recognition at Glamour and Lifeway’s 5th annual Women Making History brunch, which not only awarded their achievements, but allowed them the opportunity to speak about the need for more visibility and commemoration for women overall. And one major way to do just that is by supporting the National Women’s History Museum‘s efforts to build a physical space within Washington D.C.’s National Mall.

Zoe shared her admiration for her mom and Oprah (obviously), listing the two as her own personal female role models, and quoted Madeleine Albright’s “There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women,” while Scream Queens star Breslin borrowed a line from her favorite movie Mean Girls by reminding audience members (including Molly Simms, NeNe Leakes, and Garcelle Beauvais) that “The limit does not exist!” Zoe also preached the need to educate our children to respect and encourage one another, regardless of gender, and Ross spoke of expanding our vision of what being a fulfilled woman can be.
