Marlo Thomas' Message To Women: 'No One's Going To Come Rescue You'

Marlo Thomas wants women to know that "all of it's possible" without a man.

"The most important thing to know is that no one's going to rescue you," the actress told HuffPost Live's Alyona Minkovski in an appearance to promote her new book "It Ain't Over... Till It's Over."

"There is not going to be a prince with a glass slipper that's just going to fit you," Thomas continued. "You're going to have to rescue you, and I think for most women -- and I include myself in this -- most women don't realize that we are our own resource. We have it within ourselves to make this thing happen that we want."

"We can make our dreams come true," she concluded.
