When a queen speaks, people listen. And when that royalty is Queen Latifah, an Emmy and Grammy winner and Oscar nominee, her words are even more impactful.

Latifah was honored on Thursday at the Glasshouse NYC alongside Kim Cattrall, Drew Barrymore, Venus Williams, Camila Cabello and Amanda Seyfried at Variety’s Power of Women ceremony, presented by Lifetime. The event celebrates the accomplishments and philanthropy of women across the entertainment industry.
