It's I mean it's not the presidency but it's a cool consolation prize true. Yeah it it does make up for it a little the Chelsea. Thank you very much for being here. You came from trick or treating. This was just went trick or treating. But you didn't. Can you dress up as an he just took the kids treating kids. We had Moana writes Clock striking midnight from Cinderella. Okay and to Pumpkin. Oh I like this. I like this and if you came to my door and Halloween I'll be like oh my God you you dress us Chelsea Clinton. I've never really thought that I've built built in Halloween people chosen. Because you know it's good. Makeup did say to us. You know you look just like Hillary Clinton and I say yeah. I've heard that. Let me say first of all. Congratulations on a phenomenal book. I didn't know what to expect the book of Gutsy Women I. I didn't know it was going to be a book about American women a book about political. But it's just a book about women who have changed not just there will but the world in some way shape or form. What's interesting is that he wrote it together? You've written many book separately but this was your first book writing together as a mother and daughter as someone who's written a book without my mother. I can't imagine what it'd be like to write something with how you're staring at each of the EPA sports. What was the process like? It was a lot of fun it also the did take some adjustment mint. My mother still writes log yet like like. I said this isn't event. I could see like a teenager up in the rafters turned his mother and Saints Generation. That goes like what is this writing the words out with and no autocorrect. Oh ooh and like nobody to track. Changes have comment boxes and you doing. Are you doing it on computer. And like twenty nine hundred. How do you compare the notes? Then when when you do you do you bring the long hand into the digital dude like give it to her and be like my work well so my mother would take photographs. AH each page text or email me the photographs of the pay. Wow Yeah so like when we were particularly working on the things that we wrote together like we write about Rosa Parks and Claudette Colvin together. So I would type my Claudette Coleman Essay and send it to her as an attachment like a word document and she would take pictures of like each individual Israel page or per Rosa Parks Essay. Sin Me like page one. Feel you'll frustration as you having just working through. I can feel that. Why did you choose to write this book together? I mean you've had many opportunity. You could have written about anything your family politics your life but this is a specific book and it feels like for a specific time. Why because we really believe that in today's world the stories of Gutsy women and literally there are many millions of them but we chose one hundred three to write about because their stories tell us yes about the struggles that they endured and their persistence to try to improve their own lives and the lives of people around them? But I think especially in today's world we need to be reminded of these kinds of stories And and they are historic and contemporary and even a few fictional and they were women who inspired me as a little girl and then throughout my life and the same with Chelsea and back act. We started talking about you know inspirational women when she was a little girl. And so we want to share these stories and we hope that people can find some Message Message That will help them. Especially you know given the difficulties that a lot of a lot of people around the world face right now. It's interesting Chelsea because you you've said you know there was a time in your life when you watched you're running for president and they will more women in space than running for president to rights. And now you. You have a plethora left with six in the race and you've seen how many women participated in in the midterms and one as well. Do you feel like we're noticing a shift in society. That's positively moving to a place where there's equality not there yet but just moving us in that direction. I think we're actually making progress. I also really appreciate how you framed the question trevor. Because it's super important that we don't get complacent and that we also understand still how far we have to go. I mean even though we had an unprecedented number of women run for Congress in two thousand eighteen eighteen. We were still less than a quarter of all declared candidates so making progress but we still have a long ways to go to get to parody. But as we've seen who runs for office it's really matters because they determined to hold office was so thrilled that my children are growing up with the most diverse congress wreck mystery. You have chosen one hundred food and three women in this book who all have different stories of being gutsy. But what would you find. was the common thread that made them who they are one. I think the sense suggest deep purpose sometimes something that they knew when they were a little girl. Jane Goodall always knew she wanted to work with animals. And Sally ride the the first American woman in space Really became a physicist. Because she wasn't good enough tennis player so she found her passion later in life. But what is distinctive about all all. These women is that they brought others along with them sometimes consciously breaking down barriers and sometimes just really aware of their example and I find that really powerful awful and Gutsy. That wasn't just for themselves. It was for other STU. It's a beautiful book. We'll be talking more about it and the both of you when we come back from the break we'll be back with more from Chelsea and Secretary Hinson. Don't go away the Secretary Hillary and.
