Today, Hillary Clinton will step down from her post as Secretary of State. Regardless of your political stance, one can’t argue with the amazing impact that Hillary has had in a number of significant realms- policy, advocacy, politics and philanthropy. Here are a few other interesting facts about HRC (source: Wikipedia):
-First female chair of Legal Services Corporation
-First female partner at Rose Law Firm
-Listed two times as one of the 100 most influential lawyers in America
-First Lady of Arkansas (1979-1981; 1983-1992)
-First American First Lady to run for public office
-First female senator to represent NY (2001-2009)
-Won more primaries and delegates than any other female presidential candidate in American history
-First former First Lady to serve in a president’s cabinet
-Set record for most-traveled secretary during time in office
This woman has faced tremendous obstacles and incredible opportunities with grace and confidence. And she remains one of the biggest champions of female empowerment and equality. For all of these reasons and many more, I count her as a huge inspiration. Now- a toast to Hillary- thank you for your continued service to our country. Keep being the diva that you are.
Reblogging this because:
There are few things in life I despise more than men that say things like “I don’t want to rile you up” or “Don’t get all emotional over there” in the course of a conversation / debate.
Do you say that to guys when you disagree?
Didn’t think so.
