It's official: Hillary Clinton is Barack Obama's nominee for Secretary of State. Clinton brings many assets to the table, but in spite of her skills and experience, she will face an array of challenges in her post as diplomat-in-chief. Michele Wucker explores these challenges in this issue of Reproductive Justice & Gender and explains how she can play to her strengths to help restore U.S. credibility and increase our "soft power" -- influence beyond the world of war and weapons.

Also in this week's newsletter, Marianne Schnall from the Huffington Post talks with Saturday Night Live's Amy Poehler about her new TV series; Lisa Bennett takes a look at heroes and superheroes through the lens of gender; Lynda Waddington explains how evangelicals are breaking with the Bible's messages about women leaders; and more.

Stay tuned next week for more of the Web's best articles on reproductive justice and gender.

Thanks for reading,
