On taking parenting advice from Shonda Rhimes:
“I consider myself busy,” Washington says, “but [Scandal creator and writer] Shonda [Rhimes] has about four of five shows, three kids… She says, ‘If you feel like you have just the right amount of help, then you don’t have enough.’ My therapist said this too. You need a lot of support. Not just logistically but emotionally and spiritually.”

On not wanting to live in a color-blind world:
“I don’t want to not be African,” she says. “The goal is to live in a world where my race doesn’t limit my access, where I can see myself represented in the highest level of society without any limitation.”

On social change:
“I choose to feel optimistic, because I don’t think I could get out of bed if I didn’t,” she shares. “The key will be when we stop allowing our otherness to separate us. Whether it’s immigrant’s rights, women’s rights, civil rights, or LGBT rights, we’re all under attack, because none of us belongs to that small group who have held power for a very long time.”

On what she does in her quiet time:
“You arrive at a certain place of achieving and suddenly you feel like your goals are being dictated by other people,” she says. “Right now, as I get ready for this second baby, it’s really about me being in touch with what I want. I didn’t get here because I was trying to be what somebody else wanted me to be… So for now, I’m leaving myself open to the adventure.”
