Elisabeth Moss Dedicated Her Golden Globe To Margaret Atwood And It Was So Powerful

"We no longer live in the gaps between the stories. We are the story in print."

The television series is based on the novel by 78-year-old author Margaret Atwood, which was originally published in 1985.

"We were the people who were not in the papers," read Moss. "We lived in the blank white spaces at the edge of print. It gave us more freedom. We lived in the gaps between the story."

Moss then dedicated the award to the Canadian author: "Margaret Atwood, this is for you and the women who came before you and after you who were brave enough to speak out against intolerance and injustice and to fight for equality and freedom in this world."

"We no longer live in the blank white spaces at the edge of print. We no longer live in the gaps between the stories. We are the story in print. We are writing the story ourselves," Moss said. "Thank you."

Atwood then tweeted her congratulations to the star.

After a year in which Hollywood has been dominated by stories of women being harassed and abused, people were glad Moss's performance was being recognized.
