He said Winfrey's huge public profile would be of a benefit to her. She's a very good writer.

"They're the women whose names we'll never know".

King, who attended the awards ceremony alongside Winfrey and Graham, said being in the room was 'electrifying'. "At the same time, politics is ridiculous right now".
