Bringing it back to one of our orig #wcw's Tammy Duckworth, who since becoming the first Asian American woman elected to Congress in Illinois, the first disabled woman to be elected to Congress, and the first female double amputee in the Senate, has become the first Senator to give birth while in office!!! CONGRATS to a real life hero. Following the birth of Senator Duckworth's baby, the US Senate voted to allow its member to bring babies onto the chamber floor. Working mothers rule and we should all be working to make the room in the workplace that they deserve.
Tina Fey wants the success she has had to spread across so that her story isn't such a unique one. During her speech for Variety's Power of Women luncheon, Fey said, "The more diverse the room is, it automatically becomes better.” It should no longer be the job of one person to carry the voice of all those underrepresented, but instead we should lift more people up, so we can engage with everyone equally.
You can either see Fey's musical, Mean Girls, on Broadway or watch her show (of which she is co-creator), Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, on Netflix. Season 4 premieres May 30th.

See Bergen in her new movie, Book Club, in theaters now!
