In her first video statement since Trump's inauguration, Hilary Clinton made an empowering and moving speech for the MAKERS conference, declaring the following message: the future is still female.
The MAKERS conference "shares women's stories and celebrates women's vital roles in the past, present and future of our country." I did not know this MAKERS event was a thing, and now I wish I was there soooo badly. Speakers at the event include Debra Messing, Rosie Perez, and Katherine Najimy. Also Octavia Spencer and Gloria Steinem. Let's not forget Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood, Allie Kline of AOL, Lydia Polgreen of the Huffington Post, Diane von Furstenberg, Sheryl Sandberg, and Sophia Bush.
Jill Soloway will be there, Gabby Douglas, Patricia Arquette, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, and Ibtihaj Muhammad. It's a who's who of feminists, writers, actresses, astronauts, gymnasts, singers, CEO's, and politicians. They even make time for wine tasting and pilates. And for a video message from Hilary Clinton.
In it, Clinton conveys a strong message to women and children all across America and the world. She references the women's march, which she affirms "galvanized millions of people." If you were at one of them, you know just how energizing and unifying it was. Then, along with the theme of the MAKERS conference, which is #bebold, Hill (we are 100% on nickname basis) reiterated that women today need to set an example, dare greatly, and lead boldly.
IS HILLARY AN AMAZING HYPE WOMAN OR WHAT.
Looking directly into the camera, Clinton continued: "remember, you are the heroes and history makers, the glass ceiling breakers of the future. As I've said before, I'll say again, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world."
I don't know about you, but I wish I'd heard that more growing up.
According to Rolling Stone, Clinton's next move will be writing a book of personal essays and favorite quotations. VERY groovy and I am fully here for that.
