Hillary Clinton has paid tribute to a transgender trailblazer for International Women’s Day 2018. Mrs Clinton has composed a list of women who inspire her every day to mark the holiday, and Danica Roem belonged to this list. Clinton wrote that the transgender lawmaker “put a huge crack in the glass ceiling last November, then got right to work to serve her constituents.” The post has since been retweeted almost two thousand times and favourited more than 11,000 times. Roem replied to Clinton’s post thanking her for “for reminding us that we are always, truly #StrongerTogether.” Back in November, she became the first out trans person to be elected as a state representative. Not only that but she did so, beating an adamant transphobe, Bob Marshall, for the seat. Marshall refused to debate Roem or refer to her as a woman during the campaign, calling her “him” on campaign flyers.
