Among those hardest hit by the pandemic were working moms, who've struggled to balance caretaking with day-job demands.
"The innocent act of getting a license puts fear in our hearts," the former first lady told CBS News. "We have to talk about it more."
The photographer's use of a wide-angle lens and the framing of the photo are likely responsible for the optical illusion.

Major, the younger of the Biden dogs, had just returned to the White House after being taken to Delaware for special training.
President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump quietly received the Covid-19 vaccine at the White House in January, several outlets reported Monday. A Trump adviser shared the information with Axios, The New York Times and CNN. It’s unclear which of the two vaccines approved at the time they received.Other political leaders have publicised their own vaccinations as a way to encourage all Americans to sign up for the shot when their turn comes. Mass vaccination is the only thing that will get the country out of the coronavirus pandemic, Dr Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Monday. Trump’s approach contrasts, in particular, with those of President Joe Biden and other living former presidents who allowed their shots to be broadcast, saying they wanted to promote trust in the process.The news broke a day after Trump said at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference that “everybody” should get the coronavirus vaccine ― an idea he’s skirted around in the past.Republicans tend to be more sceptical of the vaccine, according to Civiqs polling, making encouragement from Trump and other right-wing public figures important in the effort to vaccinate the country. Only 33% of unvaccinated Republicans said they planned to get a vaccine when it became available to them, compared to 70% of unvaccinated Democrats.Many of Trump’s fans, including those at far-right media outlets such as Newsmax, support baseless conspiracy theories about the vaccine, including the false claim that it’s a system for mind control. On Fox News, host Tucker Carlson proclaimed the mere idea of a mandatory vaccination program to be “a legitimate crisis,” even though the Biden administration is not calling for one.

Trump and former first lady Melania Trump got the COVID-19 vaccine at the White House, according to multiple reports.
In an extended bit, the Fox News host claimed that the first lady is hiding the president's "senility" in a plot going all the way back to 1977.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson has cooked up a wild new conspiracy theory about President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden: Their entire 43-year marriage is a sham created for publicity. Carlson, triggered by Valentine’s Day coverage of the overtly affectionate first couple, launched into a riff of over-the-top mock praise of the Bidens’ relationship based on those media reports. “Not since Antony dined with Cleopatra in downtown Antioch ― before they killed themselves, obviously ― has a country witnessed a love story as poignant as Jill and Joe’s,” he sarcastically declared, adding: “Jill Biden is not Joe’s caretaker. She isn’t his nurse. She’s his fully equal romantic partner. Together, they are like besotted teens, yet, at the same time, they are the wise and knowing parents of a nation.”Carlson specifically cited a Politico report on the Bidens PDA that stated, “Historians and relationship experts agree: The first couple’s romantic gestures aren’t just genuine — they’re restorative.” Then he mocked both the coverage and the couple. “So it’s official: The Bidens’ affection is totally real. It’s in no way part of a slick PR campaign devised by cynical consultants determined to hide the president’s senility by misdirection,” he said, his voice rising a pitch and turning into a cackle. “Not at all! Their love is as real as climate change.”Normally that would mean the first couple’s relationship is on solid footing, given that climate change is real. But Carlson, like many figures on the right-wing network, is a longtime science denier who has attacked everything from vaccines to climate change... so the comparison wasn’t exactly sincere. His full monologue is on YouTube. But on social media, critics weren’t exactly feeling the love for Carlson’s latest claims:Will someone please cancel this dishonest a$$? https://t.co/1V5RAuZnQE— Khashoggi’s Ghost (@UROCKlive1) February 17, 2021So real then. https://t.co/bJwWtzxUon— Jerome Taylor (@JeromeTaylor) February 17, 2021Tucker couldn't even find a tan suit to attack Biden with https://t.co/KMxLn66Kel— Rumpole of the Bayou (@RumpoleBayou) February 17, 2021I’m watching Biden talk about the inflation index, economic growth, how restructuring small business loans will benefit real small businesses and I’m thinking that maybe Tucker is reaching a bit on this senility claim.https://t.co/WLIp3Q61i1— Lainey-D Surfing is the Source (@LaineyD1988) February 17, 2021

President Biden is going to need some Twitter followers. Twitter wiped out all followers from the @POTUS and @WhiteHouse accounts once Biden was sworn in, today, January 20th, rather than transferring the accounts’ existing followers over to the new administration. That’s what what Rob Flaherty, Biden’s digital director, said would happen in late December.
Here’s the full list of changes today, according to Twitter:
Trump administration Twitter accounts are now publicly archived and include: @POTUS45, @WhiteHouse45, @VP45, @PressSec45, @FLOTUS45 and @SecondLady45.
Accounts for the White House, President, Vice President, First Lady and White House Press Secretary have now inherited their new institutional usernames:
Normally, the outgoing first lady hosts her successor for tea and a tour of the White House between Election Day and the inauguration.
The first ever Twitter account for a male second spouse has been launched for Kamala Harris' husband.
The first lady has generally kept quiet in recent months - she was silent for five days after the deadly pro-Trump riot at the Capitol.
