Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former U.S. President Bill Clinton and presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, is an outspoken advocate of women in business.
This week, the former NBC news correspondent, and vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, will be campaigning for her mother in New Hampshire. (Senator Bernie Sanders is currently leading the Granite State in the Democratic polls by about 50 percent of likely primary voters, compared with Clinton's 46 percent, according to The Wall Street Journal.)
Clinton is also the author of a new book, It's Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going! (Philomel Books, 2015), an empowerment saga for children and teens.
Here are 10 notable quotes from Chelsea Clinton, on feminism, equal pay, and the incomparable bond of motherhood:
1. On negotiating for better pay
"It's always better to ask and be told no than to not ask at all."
2. On the importance of self-confidence
"We know that we need to do more to ensure that women are equally valuing ourselves."
3. On how motherhood has changed her perspective
"I didn't know I could care any more intensely about the things that I already cared about, until I became a mom, and I became the mother of a daughter."
4. On the importance of reading the news
"The first thing I ever learned how to read was the newspaper. I loved reading the newspaper, because it gave me access to what was happening in the world so that I could make up my own mind about what I wanted to see more of, or what I wanted to see less of, what I wanted to change."
5. On the importance of being able to justify your viewpoints
"I'm really grateful that my parents have always expected me to have an opinion, but also to have the evidence and data to back up my opinion and my argument."
6. On how perceptive children can be
"I am incredibly optimistic that our youngest Americans are thinking really seriously about serious problems, and what they can each do to solve them."
7. On the power of resiliency
"I do have a thick skin. I don't remember a time when people weren't attacking my parents."
8. On giving back to the community
"Engaging in the work of the world is hard, but it's the best kind of work."
9. On rolling with the punches
"Life is not about what happens to you, but what you do with what happens to you."
10. On why America needs a woman president
"One of our core values in this country is that we are the land of equal opportunity, but when equal hasn't yet included gender, there is a fundamental challenge there that, I believe, having our first woman president--whenever that is--will help resolve."
