Hillary Clinton's Twitter bio has read for some time now: "Wife, mom, grandma, women+kids advocate, FLOTUS, Senator, SecState, hair icon, pantsuit aficionado, 2016 presidential candidate."

But, sitting down with author and activist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie at a PEN America World Voices event last night following a lecture she'd given on writing, the 2016 presidential candidate decided to make some changes.

“The first word that describes you is wife. And then I think it’s mom, and then grandmother. When I saw that, I have to confess I felt just a little bit upset," confessed Adichie (per Vulture's report). "Then I looked at your husband’s Twitter account, and the first word was not husband.”

With a smile, Clinton replied: “When you put it like that, I’m going to change it.”

Clinton cited Tammy Duckworth, who recently became the first Senator to give birth while in office, as a work-life balance inspiration.
