NEW YORK, April 7 (UPI) -- Hillary Clinton's Texts from Hillary meme might be old news, but the former secretary of state is still packing a social media punch.

Clinton posted a Twitter photo of herself with Pussy Riot activists Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina that has since been retweeted nearly 10,000 times.

""Great to meet the strong & brave young women from #PussyRiot, who refuse to let their voices be silenced in #Russia," Clinton captioned the snap.



The possible 2016 presidential candidate met up with the pair at the Women in the World Summit in New York on Friday, where Clinton spoke about how women in public life are treated by the media.

"The double standard is alive and well and I think, in many respects, the media is the principle propagator of its persistence," Clinton said.
