Using her appearance to highlight the need of bringing women into the political sphere, Clinton spoke assertively on the need for more women to run for office.
According to NYU News, the play "Her Opponent", staged in January in New York City, was based on portions of the 2016 presidential debates with a twist - Trump's persona was "Brenda King" played by an actress, while Clinton's was "Jonathan Gordon", played by a male actor.
Clinton reportedly received a standing ovation following her remarks. "I've had my ups and my downs".
"I'm going to go to the hair salon and be like give me the Hillary Clinton blonde plz", tweeted one user. "Hillary Clinton spots new bob with bangs on International Women's Day [Image by Justin Sullivan/AP Images]"@HillaryClinton's new hair is a game changer". She was on hand to accept the 2017 Champion for Girls Award from the organization.
"Never lose your optimism, your persistence and your resistance", she continued.
Another - a musical theater composer, actually - said that Trump created "hummable lyrics", while Clinton talked a lot, and everything she was was true and factual, but there was no "hook" to it.
However, while thousands of her fans on social media admired her new hairstyle, saying it looked cute, fresh and chic, others said they missed her familiar old looks. "Let's help them shatter stereotypes and lift each other up".
The tweet went viral even before Clinton shared it, and while a few people accused her of making the tweet up, Zupko wasn't deterred and had the flawless response to trolls: "LOL at all the men who think I faked this tweet in order to support my nefarious, selfish goal of. empowering women". "And in those moments, I've been thankful for own village, my community of family and friends that have encouraged me".
"We have to keep fighting, we have to remain stubborn", she said.
Clinton, who didn't comment specifically on Trump's first months in office, did say she has been inspired by recent women marches being demonstrated across the country.
