Today we celebrate women around the world, for their impact and success, for their courage and thrive. Hillary Clinton added a special message on twitter to cap International Women’s Day.
Clinton quoted a tweet that featured a note from a student found on a classroom floor by a fourth-grade teacher. The note reads: “Do you want to join a club for female empowerment. We are the leaders.”
Clinton decided to share a link to that tweet on her Twitter page. “On #InternationalWomensDay I’m thinking about this young girl, & all the others like her out there,” the tweet read.
Elly’s tweet got some criticism so she decided to respond. She went on to include a more thorough tweet thread about what’s happened since the note was found.
“My friend has asked me to help form and co-sponsor the club, which has the full backing of the school. She talked to the note’s author and found that she wants to start the club because boys had been telling her girls can’t do what boys can… Something happened to one girl, and it made her feel bad. Her reaction was to want to stop it from happening to other girls. THAT’S AWESOME,” Elly says in a series of tweets.
