On January 17, Fuller tweeted: “It’s an honor to be invited to participate in one of America’s greatest traditions. This historic inauguration is especially meaningful for American women and girls. The glass ceilings are breaking and it is time to #leadlikewoman.” She also tagged Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the latter of whom is the first female Vice President-elect in United States history.
