With the House passage of #BuildBackBetter, we are one step closer to guaranteeing #PaidLeave for all workers and strengthening our care infrastructure. Now the Senate must act on this historic opportunity to invest in women, families, and the economy by passing this bill.

Good news: Today, we're celebrating the launch of a new, more diverse, country-driven @FP2030Global movement. I was grateful to speak with leaders like @SamukelisoDube and @nskaoma06, who are helping build a world where all women can plan their future.

.@DVF has built her career on helping women express themselves. So when she asked my best advice for women leaders, the answer was easy—be your true self. Thank you Diane and @Womens_Forum, for the honor of being recognized with your 2021 Lifetime Leadership Award. I am humbled!

Happy #TakeAHikeDay! No matter where I go, hiking is one of my favorite ways to decompress and get moving. What’s your favorite hike? This one in Cape Town, South Africa, was one of mine! 🥾

It's incredible to see young women supporting one another as they pursue careers in and around tech. What was my advice to this group? You're more powerful than you know. Society may try to make you doubt yourself, but don't believe it for one second.

Proud to join @EmmanuelMacron and other leaders at the @ParisPeaceForum today. The pandemic is making inequality worse, but we can reverse this trend by expanding access to economic opportunities everywhere. Let's choose a more inclusive path to recovery. #ParisPeaceForum2021

As we strive to recover from the pandemic, we must center our efforts and innovations on the world's most vulnerable people--or risk losing a generation of progress. Today at #GrandChallenges, I discussed what an inclusive recovery will take. https://t.co/XYSIFSGF5L

Fighting for caregivers is nothing new to former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, and as always, her call to activism is spot-on. We must invest in institutions that support those on the front lines of care. https://t.co/YNMOYB62wc

As the number of older adults in the U.S. continues to rise, it’s time to unleash innovation in caregiving. The 2021 @Techstars Future of Longevity Accelerator class is doing just that. I can’t wait to see the progress they make for older adults and their caregivers. https://t.co/jvXErLgy9p

In her new memoir, “My Life in Full,” @IndraNooyi shares the unique turns of her trailblazing career and a universal vision for why improving our care infrastructure would make everyone better off. A definite must read! https://t.co/Rker0Wi6Fw

There is a serious syringe shortage facing low- and middle-income countries, which means vaccines can’t reach vulnerable populations. I'm excited to see this investment in the production of syringes in Kenya, which will help address the gap. https://t.co/q8BVeQcdoc

I am grateful for the advocates and lawmakers who keep on fighting to pass #PaidLeave as part of the #BuildBackBetter plan. Your stories and your voices matter. Thanks to you, we are closer than ever to making history and passing the country’s first national paid leave policy. https://t.co/QMD1jgBpjT

Smallholder farming is a proven path out of poverty, especially for women, who comprise the majority of smallholder farmers. But climate change is already impacting their work. We can help small-scale food producers adapt. Here's how. #COP26 https://t.co/xFOwXe5PiI

PL+US (Paid Leave for the US)
Paid leave is a priority for moderates, conservatives, progressives, it is supported by labor and business. It will unite our country and help every working family in America. You cannot cut paid leave in a pandemic—you make a legacy of it. #PaidLeaveCantWait #BBB

Yes, we are still fighting for paid family/medical leave to stay in the package as @POTUS promised last week! Thank you, @SpeakerPelosi for keeping the fight on and raising the policy on @CNN this morning! #FamilyCareCantWait

From families to businesses, our message to Congress is loud and clear: this is the moment for #paidleave.

“The question is not whether U.S. workers will need time away from work—it’s whether this is the year Congress will ensure that #PaidLeave is available when they do.” — @melindagates https://t.co/zlgbKK8IFZ

In a moment when employers are scrambling to fill open jobs, 37% of unemployed workers said access to paid family leave would make them more likely to return to work sooner. https://t.co/Po6Fglepp8 #CareCantWait #PaidLeave

I’m joining @melindagates and other leaders to call on Congress to seize this once-in-a-generation opportunity to pass a long overdue #PaidLeave policy. Unless we act, this opportunity may slip away—with huge consequences for women, families, and the U.S. economy.

.@melindagates: Our economy is powered by caregivers. That’s why it’s time for national paid leave https://t.co/PrkCiaQJuY

"What’s more patriotic than to point out that everyone in the United States, including the women and people of color and LGBT community, that they’re all doing the right thing — everyone is pulling together, everyone is making sacrifices?" https://t.co/4DbigJXHNA

Paid leave is public health. Paid leave is economic security and growth. Paid leave is time and care for our families. Paid leave makes us more resilient and prepared. Paid leave is the commonsense solution and a profound legacy we can leave after the year that we've had.

My thoughts and prayers are with #Afghanistan's women and girls, whose future and safety now hang in the balance. Limiting basic freedoms for women and girls—as we saw under previous Taliban rule—would have devastating consequences for generations to come.

Equality Can't Wait
National #PaidLeave means no one has to choose between their paycheck & their families during life's challenging moments. And it's a key way to help our country, businesses, & families!
