“It’s a choice to be optimistic,”told the crowd, addressing the striking down of the landmark American abortion legislation Roe v.

I truly believe the power to reverse that wrong lies as much with this crowd as it does in the halls of Congress,” said Cynthia Littleton, Variety co-editor-in-chief, during her opening remarks with Variety CEO and group publisher Michelle Sobrino-Stearns.
