When you go to dinner at your usual spot...but not with each other. #wcw I just love the integrity and spirit of this one! @elisabethmossofficial
In the work that I've been doing with organizations like @undp and @onecampaign who are driven to fighting poverty around the world I have come to one undeniable conclusion: nowhere in the world, including the US, are women economically equal to men, nor do they have the same economic opportunities as men. That needs to change. Because when that changes, economies change, national and global security change, health and life expectancy change. Women do so much of the work in the world and are paid less, or not at all for it. Period. Women and children are the greatest bearers of poverty in our country and the world. Period. Unacceptable. And changeable. Think bigger. Think better. #timesup #povertyissexist

Oh what a night. Thanks as always @instylemagazine #goldenglobes #timesup
This is what it's all about. This movement is just as valuable for the boys and men. We need you. Equally. #timesup

I got teary eyed reading this courageous story posted by an old friend on my personal feed this morning. Thanks for letting me share this, about your mom......笶、ク. "Story time.ツ#TimesUp After my father died, my mother had to or chose to go into the big wide world of 窶徇en窶冱窶 work. Two children to feed. Nothing else, except some very supportive female friends. She ended up at a Big American Bank in the 80s, a beautiful cultured widow in her 30s, determined to provide for her own children through hard work, harder work and the hardest work. This was at a time when only 5% of her office was female.ツ Sexually harassed by her boss, belittled and passed over for bonuses, promotions - numerous male colleagues were very happy to steal money out of the mouths of those who needed and deserved it the most and who could NOT risk speaking out. Not risk being blackballed and labelled as a troublemaker.ツBut this isn窶冲 about women or her.ツ It窶冱 about me, her only son.ツ Her 10 year old boy, old enough to eavesdrop on conversations he shouldn窶冲 have. Old enough to understand what was going on. Old enough to have true rage build up in him against those who would dare harm and coerce his mother. The defenceless man of the house.ツ Images of a man trying to force open her hotel room door. My protector. My comfort.ツ A hard badge to carry with you in a world and culture that tells you men should protect their women at all costs. Even their 10 year old boys.ツA terrible and horrible thing to watch and imagine and try and live through.ツ This isn窶冲 the full story but it is a full story. And it is a story about overcoming the odds and of success.ツ Please understand that many of the best and kindest and decent humans I窶况e ever encountered have been men.ツI窶冦 not one for joining movements. I represent myself and myself only.ツ笄Butツ#timesup " 笶、ク条泗条沛ス @timesupnow
On my way to @goldenglobes! Gooooo #SMILF!! @sho_smilf
Dressed in black and ready to go to the @goldenglobes earlier tonight with the glam squad dreams are made of. My sweater says "Poverty is sexist" and we dressed in black to acknowledge that it is time for all of us, men and women, to empower ourselves with equality. My hope is that this movement will now reach the grass roots, the small towns, the villages near and far, where women have been silenced, without resources, in the face of gender disparity. We are all stronger when we work together with respect and understanding. Strong women equal strong families, economies, and communities. Everywhere. So let's get this show on the road. #timesup #povertyissexist
About last night. At the @jphro gala where we got an update on the amazing work being done by them in Haiti and other places so hard hit by natural disaster this year. Sean Penn and J/P HRO are really creating a framework for how we help in a true integrated way. And congrats to Leo DiCaprio for his honor.
Tonight begins the journey of @911onFox. We're all in this together...let's go! Airs 9/8c. #911onFox
Merry Christmas!
Please call. If we destroy DACA we destroy the American dream. #wearealldreamers
To so many who have been affected by the tragedy of gun violence, you are in my heart today and always. And my heart is broken. #sensiblegunlaws #please

Being briefed about the shootings in Newtown. 窶廣nd each time I learn the news I react not as a President, but as anybody else would -- as a parent.  And that was especially true today.  I know there窶冱 not a parent in America who doesn窶冲 feel the same overwhelming grief that I do. 
The majority of those who died today were children -- beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old.  They had their entire lives ahead of them -- birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.  Among the fallen were also teachers -- men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams. 
So our hearts are broken today -- for the parents and grandparents, sisters and brothers of these little children, and for the families of the adults who were lost.  Our hearts are broken for the parents of the survivors as well, for as blessed as they are to have their children home tonight, they know that their children窶冱 innocence has been torn away from them too early, and there are no words that will ease their pain. 
As a country, we have been through this too many times.  Whether it窶冱 an elementary school in Newtown, or a shopping mall in Oregon, or a temple in Wisconsin, or a movie theater in Aurora, or a street corner in Chicago -- these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children.  And we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.窶 Shame on Congress for not passing any sensible gun control legislation.
