Betty Reid Soskin in the early 1940s. As a young woman during WWII, Betty worked as a file clerk in a segregated union auxiliary. “My great-grandmother was born into slavery, enslaved for 19 years, and freed by the Emancipation Proclamation. But I didn’t have to take care of white people’s children, and I didn’t have to clean white people’s houses. I was a clerk,” she spoke of her experience. “That, in 1942, would have been the equivalent of today’s young woman of color being the first in her family to enter college.” At age 96, Betty is currently the oldest National Park Ranger in the United States.

Honored to be one of Glamour’s Women of the Year amongst other women I admire and adore so much. I’ve never been the most eloquent person and lately I’ve noticed myself going quiet - consumed by the news of the day, and not quite knowing what to say. Or wanting to say something but not really having the mental strength to handle the inevitable backlash. But I end up feeling worse. I want to speak up for those that can’t, for people that feel smaller or less-than because of the big talk of a small man. I PROMISE I am going to do what I can to live up to this title and live up to the bar set by incredible women like Kamala, Viola, Janelle. I am not worthy but I will continue to try to make you laugh, give love through food, and wad the panties of assholes trying to keep you down. I love you guys and am so appreciative of the platform you have bestowed upon me!! Thank you to @glamourmag for this incredible honor. #glamourWOTY
