Hillary Clinton Profile Information

  • As a young reader, I absolutely adored Nancy Drew, the intrepid sixteen-year-old high school graduate who solved mysteries. My friends and I all wanted to be more like Nancy: smart, brave, and independent. (In particular, I admired the way she would sometimes do her detective work wearing sensible pants.)⁣
⁣
That's why I was absolutely delighted to come face-to-face with one of my old Nancy Drew mysteries—The Hidden Window Mystery—while in my hometown of Park Ridge, Illinois last week. It had been donated to my old school's used book sale, and enjoyed by another local family, the Machons, who noticed that I'd signed my name on the inside cover.⁣
⁣
Nancy Drew was the first literary hero that I shared with both my mother, Dorothy, and my daughter, Chelsea. She's one of the heroes we write about in "The Book of Gutsy Women." I love that we shared her with the Machons and countless other families, too.⁣

"If the impeachment provision in the Constitution of the United States will not reach the offenses charged here, then perhaps that 18th-century Constitution should be abandoned to a 20th-century paper shredder!" #gutsywomen

  • Because I have a life you can't make up: as a young lawyer I worked on the Watergate impeachment inquiry. One of my jobs was to sit alone in a windowless room and listen very carefully to tapes of President Nixon’s phone calls. #tbt⁣

  • "The Book of Gutsy Women" is out today from me and Chelsea, our first book project together. ⁣
⁣
It's full of the stories of courageous and resilient women who had faith that their actions could make a difference—and they were right.⁣
⁣
Civil rights activist Dorothy Height, LGBTQ trailblazer Edie Windsor, and swimmer Diana Nyad kept pushing forward, no matter what. Writers like Rachel Carson and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie named something no one had dared talk about before. Historian Mary Beard opened doors to our past and future that were once closed. Wangari Maathai sparked a movement to plant trees. Harriet Tubman and Malala Yousafzai looked fear in the face and persevered. ⁣
⁣
In the moments when the long haul seems awfully long, Chelsea and I hope you will draw strength from these stories. We do—because if history shows one thing, it’s that the world needs gutsy women.⁣

You can get a copy for yourself—or a gutsy women in your life—at the link in my bio. #gutsywomen

  • Don't miss the Harry half of @sussexroyal editing the @NatGeo Instagram account today to raise awareness of the critical role trees play in our ecosystem. His advice, which he's following himself here in Malawi: Look up. #LookingUp

  • Why did Danica Roem decide to run for the state legislature in 2017? "Because I'm fed up with the frickin' road over in my hometown," she said. She campaigned on core promises like fixing congestion on Route 28 in her northern Virginia county. ⁣
⁣
When she won, she also made history as the first openly transgender person to be elected to a state legislature.⁣
⁣
Of making history, Danica said: "I want to make sure that when people see me, they go: 'Yeah, she's transgender, and she's a really, really good policy wonk. Yeah, she's transgender, and she has a really good bill to fix Route 28.' It's not trans 'but.' It's trans 'and.'"⁣
⁣
Happy birthday to this gutsy woman and history-maker who has been doing the work of fixing Prince William County's congestion problems—just as she promised.⁣
⁣
Danica's story is one of over 100 that Chelsea and I included in our new book, "Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience." It's out tomorrow. Link in bio! #gutsywomen
