    Momentous news in world health: The 2 billionth lifesaving, insecticide-treated mosquito net will be distributed this year. Global cooperation and U.S. leadership has helped millions of children in Africa grow up malaria-free. #EndMalaria

    Twenty-seven years ago today, Maya Angelou read her poem "On the Pulse of Morning" on the occasion of Bill's first inauguration. It's remarkable that one of our greatest poets was, as she put it, a "volunteer mute" for five years of her childhood. Chelsea and I wrote about how she reinvented herself through reading in "The Book of #GutsyWomen."

Yesterday, Virginia State Delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy and the rest of her legislature made their state the 38th to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. It's the final state needed to make the amendment eligible for addition to the Constitution. ⁣

"When I think about passing the Equal Rights Amendment," Delegate Carroll Foy wrote for Marie Claire, "I think of a world where women are truly equal to men. A world where we're paid equally, where getting pregnant won’t lead to discrimination in the workplace, and where a woman can make the best choices for her and her future. For too long, women have not had the protections from discrimination we deserve in the U.S. Constitution, and with passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, we’ll be that much closer to living in a world where women and girls have the same opportunities as men."

    This week in 1917, suffragists started a silent demonstration in front of the White House. Over a hundred years later, we’ll be celebrating their historic accomplishment: beginning the march of history to win women the vote. #gutsywomen

    I loved what Michelle Williams had to say about women, choice, and voting at the Golden Globes last night:⁣
⁣
"I’m grateful for the acknowledgment of the choices I’ve made, and I’m also grateful to have lived at a moment in our society where choice exists. Because as women and as girls, things can happen to our bodies that are not our choice.⁣
⁣
I’ve tried my very best to live a life of my own making, and not just a series of events that happened to me, but one that I could stand back and look at and recognize my handwriting all over—sometimes messy and scrawling, sometimes careful and precise, but one that I had carved with my own hand. And I wouldn’t have been able to do this without employing a woman’s right to choose: to choose when to have my children, and with whom."⁣
⁣
She went on: “So women, 18 to 118, when it is time to vote, please do so in your own self interest. It's what men have been doing for years. It is what men have been doing for years, which is why the world looks so much like them. Don't forget we are the largest voting body in this country. Let's make it look more like us."⁣

    It’s my great privilege to become @QUBelfast's 11th—and first female—chancellor. It's a place I have great fondness for and have grown a strong relationship with over the years. The university's motto is "pro tanto quid retribuamus," which means: "What shall we give in return for so much?" I'm proud to be an ambassador for such a fine animating spirit, as well as for Queen's research, impact, and overall excellence.

    There's something all of us can do to be braver, more resilient, kinder, and more grateful. This holiday season, that’s my wish for all of us. Happy New Year!
