The Wing’s CEO Audrey Gelman made history last week as the first visibly pregnant woman to appear on the cover of a business magazine.

The Inc. article accompanying the cover profiled Gelman and The Wing, which brought in $118 million in funding.

“I am humbled by what we all go through together collectively to change the ratio—and how when we gather and support one another, we go further, faster,” Gelman said in a post on Instagram.

She received a lot of support online from women, including Hillary Clinton.
