Lena Dunham isn't afraid to get incredibly provocative, even in a room filled with Hollywood's most powerful women!

"Some girls who grew up in the '90s dreamt of a luxury cruise with N'Sync," the "Girls" creator and star joked. "But my fantasy has always been a room full of Hollywood power bitches enjoying breakfast foods."

It's safe to say the self-described feminist wasn't shy about calling out Hollywood's gender inequality issue as she kicked off The Hollywood Reporter's 24th Annual Women in Entertainment breakfast at Milk Studios in West Hollywood on Wednesday.

"I want to thank all of you for brilliantly and stylishly cleaning up the mess that Hollywood has made of equality and diversity," Dunham candidly said. "After all, isn't that historically what women have been asked to do to, clean up messes that don't belong to them?"

The 29-year-old actress, who made THR's Power 100 List for the second consecutive year, joins a list of other big honorees in attendance like Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner and comedian Sarah Silverman.

While Dunham had many moments that caused the audience to erupt in laughter, it was publicist Nanci Ryder and DreamWorks executive Jeffrey Katzenberg who stole the show.

Ryder, who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease last year, wrote a poignant speech about the gender problem in the entertainment industry that Katzenberg read aloud because she can no longer speak.

"I wish my disease were as easy to fix as this," she wrote.

After reading the emotional speech, Katzenberg broke down in tears as he praised his long-time friend.

"I aspire to be half the person you are," the famous film executive said.

Barbra Streisand, who was honored with the prestigious Sherry Lansing Leadership Award, capped off the star-studded event with an important challenge for women everywhere.

"Speak up until women are treated equally by the people who pay us, by the people who heal us and by the people who claim to represent us," she said. "And remember: the more we support each other, the stronger we become."
