"What advice would you give to the young girls of the world?"
That's the question BuzzFeed posed to 11 famous women on the Oscars' red carpet on Feb. 22. From funny ladies to celebrated dramatic actresses, "Selma" director Ava DuVernay to 18-year-old actress Chloë Grace Moretz, every single woman's answer was a powerful reminder of what young girls need to hear while they're growing up.
One standout piece of advice was "How To Get Away With Murder" star Viola Davis' comment: "To not live someone else's life and someone else's idea of what womanhood is. Womanhood is you. Womanhood is everything that's inside of you," she said.
Other wise words came from 'Jane The Virgin' actress Gina Rodriguez: "Work hard. Be so good they can't ignore you."
