  • Women in low-income jobs are bearing the brunt of the economic downturn caused by the pandemic. Think of the garment worker whose factory has shut down because the global demand for new clothes has stalled. Or the woman who sells food in an outdoor market and has to close shop because no one is gathering anymore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Leaders around the world can—and must—step in. Emergency cash transfers—that are designed to reach women—are a good way to prevent this pandemic from locking these workers and their families into poverty.

  • At the core of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s extraordinary life was a simple conviction: “Women belong,” she said, “in all places where decisions are being made.” She was a brilliant jurist, an inimitable Supreme Court justice, a force for equality and integrity—and she was one of my heroes. There will never be another RBG, but we are a much better, fairer country for all that she gave us. Photo by Bettmann via Getty Images

  • I am heartbroken about the passing of Bill Gates Sr. It is difficult to overstate what he meant to me, to our family, and to our foundation. Bill Sr. liked to say, in characteristic modesty, that the secret to his success was simply “showing up.” And he was world-class at showing up: as a father and grandfather, as the heart of our foundation who rarely missed a day of work in 20 years (even though he was retired the whole time), and as a pillar of the Seattle community for almost three quarters of a century. He always brought with him extraordinary wisdom, endless integrity, and a magical sense of wonder about the world around him. We will miss him, but we will forever catch glimpses of him in the people whose lives are changed by the work our foundation supports—and in the loving moments our family shares.

  • If you take away one message from this year’s Goalkeepers report, I’d like it to be this: The world can end the COVID-19 pandemic and start to undo its damage if we commit to working together. The Goalkeepers report is our annual assessment of the world’s progress toward the 17 Sustainable Development Goals—a set of goals that countries, gathered at the United Nations, agreed to achieve by 2030. Reaching these goals will help us realize a world where every person has an equal opportunity to lead a healthy, productive life. I won’t sugarcoat it: The 2020 report is not a comforting read. The pandemic is worsening inequalities everywhere and slowing down, and sometimes reversing, progress. But I hope the urgency and possibilities of our shared global mission will make this report inspiring, too. Global cooperation can still fix this global crisis. Through innovation and an equitable distribution of solutions, we can still make up lost ground. So let’s get to work. You can go to the link in my profile to read this year’s full Goalkeepers report.

  • To build back from COVID-19 more prosperous and more equal than before, the world needs more—and better—data on women.

  • As the U.S. Open starts, I’m thinking about a tennis match from 47 years ago. I still remember sitting in front of the TV as a kid and watching @billiejeanking take on Bobby Riggs in “The Battle of the Sexes.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I recently got to speak to Billie Jean about that experience and how it helped spur her to decades of activism for gender equality. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “For me, playing Bobby had little to do with tennis,” she told me. “It may have been a tennis match, but it was all about social change.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tap the link in my bio to read.

  • Warren Buffett is one of those people who always has a kind word for everyone. He likes to make sure everyone feels celebrated. Today, on his 90th, Id love to do that for him. Happy birthday, my friend.

  • Lifelong civil rights activist Mary Church Terrell was a woman of firsts. She was elected the first president of the National Association of Colored Women. She was one of the first Black women to earn a bachelor’s degree. And she, along with her daughter, participated in the first-ever pickets of the White House in 1917. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Visit the link in my bio to learn more about this pioneer’s work to fight for women’s rights and the rights of Black Americans.

  • Last year, we learned that if the pace of progress remains constant, it could take another 208 years to reach gender equality in the United States. That means you won’t see it. I won’t see it. Even a little girl born a century from today won’t see it in her lifetime, either.   ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But if there’s one thing we’ve learned in 2020, it’s that the pace of progress can change.   ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We can accept another two centuries of incremental gains, or we can celebrate Women’s Equality Day by insisting on something much better, much sooner.   ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ More women, especially more women of color, need to be in positions to make the decisions, control the resources, and shape the policies that affect their lives and communities.   ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a piece for @CNN, I shared what I hope the world will look like 100 years from now. Read my thoughts, along with perspectives from @kimberlecrenshaw, @mrapinoe, and other inspiring women, at the link in my bio. #EqualityCantWait
