    Twenty-seven years ago this week: Mae Jemison becomes the first African American woman in space. "Never be limited by other people's limited imaginations," she has said. "You can hear other people's wisdom, but you've got to re-evaluate the world for yourself." #gutsywomen

    “People always say that I didn’t give up my seat because I was tired," Rosa Parks said. "But that isn’t true. I was not tired physically, no more tired than I usually was at the end of a working day... No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.”⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Four days before refusing to give up her seat on a bus in Alabama, Parks—a seasoned civil rights activist—had attended a meeting to address the murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till. Till's murder came amid a wave of lynchings of black people across the South.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Parks said she considered her options when the bus driver demanded that she give up her seat for a white passenger. “I didn’t even know if I would get off the bus alive,” she said. “I felt that, if I did stand up, it meant that I approved of the way I was being treated, and I did not approve.”⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Her action helped spark the Montgomery Bus Boycott, and her continued activism helped sustain it. Bill awarded Parks the Presidential Medal of Freedom 23 years ago this week.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Her story of courage and resilience is one of over 100 Chelsea and I have included in "Gutsy Women," out October 1, and I can't wait to share them all. Link in bio.

    As we celebrate Grandparents Day, I am so pleased to announce “Grandma’s Gardens,” a new picture book Chelsea and I have co-authored together. ⁣

It’s a multi-generational story inspired by my mother, Dorothy, and I can’t wait to share it with you. Link in profile!

    I'm so inspired by how Meghan Markle—aka one half of @sussexroyal—is representing the U.S. in the U.K. and on the world stage. Meghan's new project: Helping @SmartWorksCharity equip women who have been out of the workforce with the office essentials they need to feel confident in job interviews and beyond. The ability to earn their own paycheck is a key part of women's economic, social, and cultural equality, and it can all start with some smart suits. 🇺🇸🇬🇧💃

    “From the time I was in college," said Frances Perkins, "I was horrified at the work that many women and children had to do in factories. There were absolutely no effective laws that regulated the number of hours they were permitted to work. There were no provisions which guarded their health nor adequately looked after their compensation in case of injury. Those things seemed very wrong. I was young and was inspired with the idea of reforming, or at least doing what I could, to help change those abuses.” ⁣
⁣
Perkins did exactly that. As Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Secretary of Labor, she was instrumental in crafting the New Deal, the minimum wage, overtime laws, unemployment benefits, Social Security, protections to reduce workplace accidents, laws against child labor, and the 40-hour work week. She did it all as the first woman to serve in the U.S. cabinet. #gutsywomen

    Six years ago, on the morning of August 31, 2013, Diana Nyad jumped into the sea in Havana, Cuba, for her fifth attempt at a first. ⁣
⁣
She wanted to be the first person to swim from Havana, Cuba, to Key West, Florida, without a protective cage to ward off sharks and deadly jellyfish. She was 64 years old and had been attempting the crossing for the past four years. ⁣
⁣
Along her journey six years ago, she weathered the dangers of those sharks and the treacherous currents of the Gulf Stream—on top of the exhaustion of swimming for over 50 straight hours. ⁣
⁣
When she climbed up onto the beach in Key West, she shared some words of wisdom with supporters gathered to greet her: “One: Never, ever give up. Two: You’re never too old to chase your dreams. Three: It looks like a solitary sport, but it’s a team.” ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Nyad's story is one of over 100 in "The Book of Gutsy Women," a project from Chelsea and me to celebrate women who inspire us. Narrowing down the list was tough! It's out in just one month. Pre-order at the link in bio.⁣⁣
