the good news

Almost no other story puts me in as good a mood as our annual roundup of the year’s most powerful moments for women (p. 95). From Emma González’s fist raised high after the tragic shooting of her high school classmates in Parkland, Florida, to the steady hands of Southwest Airlines pilot Tammie Jo Shults, whose emergency landing of a damaged aircraft saved 148 lives, the actions of the women we highlight this year—and every year—move me profoundly. Would you believe that when we began putting this story together for the first time, for 2016, we anticipated updating it online with the pièce de résistance—the inauguration of our country’s first female president?

what you said

As a critical consumer of media, it is so important for me to add to her letter: Yes, we are a nation of immigrants, but that’s…

the making of michelle

Long before she had established herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls, Michelle Obama was an overachieving youngster in Chicago trying to find her way in the world. In her memoir, Becoming (November 13; Crown), the former first lady reveals the triumphs and disappointments behind her rise to show “how a girl from the South Side found her voice.” On the eve of its publication, Obama sat down for an intimate conversation with Oprah Winfrey and Hearst magazine editors. Here are some highlights: ON HER CHOICE OF LAW AS A CAREER… In the book, I take you on the journey of who that little striving star-getter became—which is what a lot of hard-driving kids become: a box checker. Get good grades: Check. Apply to the best schools, get into Princeton:…
