Can I have a wine glass instead of be stirring soup?

The writers—we have almost 50 percent female writers—they are so attuned to Bow.

These days, Tracee Ellis Ross has a lot to be thankful for.

The daughter of world-famous singer Diana Ross, she won a Golden Globe for her performance in the sitcom "Black-ish," and she's a three-time NAACP Image Award recipient.

”—she is still judged on the marriage and kid counts. Sure, Bow’s got a husband and kids, but those are just two parts of her life: She’s also an anesthesiologist, an activist, a sexual being, a Beyoncé fan, and more. But what has been way more impactful for me is the larger meaning….

Well-meaning people remind Ross that it’s “never too late” for her life to have, quote, : “As if all that I have done and who I am doesn’t matter.” In her confusion about these expectations, she took to her journal, where she had an epiphany: “I wrote down, ‘My life is mine….’ Those words stopped me in my tracks and honestly brought so many tears to my eyes.” And the realization opened a door for her to sort out what her life could look like if she had full ownership of it. “What’s so interesting to me about Bow is her selfhood,” Ross recently said when accepting an award from Women in Film. Tracee Ellis Ross, thanks to an honorary doctorate from her alma mater, Brown University. GLAMOUR: In 2017, you became the first black woman in more than 30 years to win the Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy and you got an Emmy nod. When another woman or another woman of color has a win, I feel like it’s is told through [Bow’s husband] Dre’s eyes, so it is very traditional in that sense. The tendency, in the old paradigm of how you look at a sitcom wife, is to say, “Isn’t it incredible that she’s also a doctor?

’s Women of the Year Summit—where she denounced the cultural pressure on women to couple up and trot out some tots—I felt like she spoke to my soul.“It’s really interesting to be a woman and to get to 45 and not be married and not have kids,” Ross told the audience.

Even though she’s killing it in many ways—“I’m a good friend, a solid daughter, a hard worker, my credit is good, I take out the garbage before it gets smelly, I recycle, and I won a Golden Globe!

…On the other hand, it feels very natural: I very mothering.

Whether I end up having children or not, I will always be a very mothering person. TER: The Diana Ross we all know kind of doesn’t hold a candle to the mom that I have, in her extraordinary ability to love. We used to spend most of my Christmases in my grandmother’s house in Detroit with all of my cousins.

So my mom never dissuaded it; although I will say, she was very big on saying things like, “You sure you don’t want to be a doctor? Barbara Ross-Lee, the first black female dean of a medical school. But what I saw in my mother was a woman with a platform, who had agency in her life. GLAMOUR: You mentioned before that she also taught you a lot about love. TER: My mother has a deep heart for her children that I almost don’t understand.… ” I have never heard my mom say, “Not now—I don’t have time.” Even now, in the middle of the night, my mom will answer the telephone. At my close friend’s wedding, she said something like, “I’m so glad that I finally have someone to share my life with.” Obviously, I was happy she found this wonderful human, but in that moment, I also thought, Excuse me, I’ve been sharing your life with you for a decade! I will say—listen—I do not want to make out with my best friend, nor do I want them to spoon me naked. However, I will tell you that my best friend, for example, is very clear, with her husband—that I’m in the relationship too.
