"I keep thinking about the women I have known since kindergarten or 7th grade, who are more strongly in my life than almost ever. But today I want to pay tribute to one (technically almost) woman on the cusp of it." 

She continued: "This woman gives me hope for the future of sisterhood, and for the future of our planet. And this woman has made me the woman I am today more than anyone else."

"When I see my daughter with her friends, they are so empowered. They have—and I mean this word in the best possible way—they have a sense of entitlement that's beautiful. It's not spoiled.

"It's like, 'No, we are here for what the boys are gonna get, too'. I find it very uplifting and heartening that we all seem to be going in this direction together."
