Good morning, Broadsheet readers! The tables have turned in the case against Planned Parenthood, Facebook’s Dad-in-Chief is back at work, and ski superstar Lindsey Vonn breaks yet another record. Have a wonderful Tuesday.
• Careful what you ask for. A Texas grand jury that was investigating accusations of misconduct against Planned Parenthood has instead indicted two abortion opponents who made undercover videos of the organization. “We must go where the evidence leads us,” said Harris County DA Devon Anderson.

ALSO IN THE HEADLINES
• Twitter turmoil. Fortune‘s Leena Rao reports on Twitter’s exodus of top execs. Among the departures is Katie Jacobs Stanton, the social media company’s vice president of global media. Meanwhile, Re/Code is reporting that Leslie Berland, EVP of global advertising, marketing, and digital partnerships at American Express, is likely to become Twitter’s new CMO.
• Finding a silver lining. Despite the doom and gloom coming out of Davos, Deloitte CEO Cathy Engelbert insists that changes in the global economy will open up new opportunities for women.
• #WomenNotObjects. Madonna Badger, an advertising exec and creator of the viral video “We Are #WomenNotObjects,” has pledged that her agency will not make ads that objectify women or airbrush those women who do appear in its campaigns.
• Dad-in-Chief. After a two-month paternity leave, Mark Zuckerberg returned to work yesterday. The CEO was very public about his decision to take time off—and spent much of those two months posting photos of himself with his daughter on Facebook. Let’s hope he continues to champion the notion that it’s okay for execs and other powerful men to spend time with family.
• Let’s go Lindsey! Lindsey Vonn has claimed her 75th World Cup victory, breaking the world record for number of downhill event wins.
• The data doyenne. “American companies do not have an immediate right to collect data on our citizens,” says Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin, a key player in efforts to police how digital data is transferred between the U.S. and Europe.

MOVERS AND SHAKERS: Daianara Grullon Amalfitano has been named the ALDO Group’s first-ever VP of global footwear. She previously was with Steve Madden.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
• Get the skinny. The Skinny, a comedic web series about a feminist YouTube star who struggles with bulimia—created by and starring Jessie Kahnweiler—is premiering at the Sundance Film Festival today.
New York Times
• An award-worthy idea. What if women also considered an Oscars boycott?
• Millennial matters. According to new research by Deloitte, nearly half of millennial women believe they are “being overlooked for potential leadership positions.” As a result, 67% said they would leave their current employer in the next five years (compared to 64% of millennial men).
• The princess problem. Disney “princess movies” from 1989 to 1999 are startlingly male-dominated. Men speak 68% of the time in Little Mermaid, 71% in Beauty and the Beast, and 76% in Pocahontas.
• Pretty in pantsuits? The Atlantic‘s Megan Garber dives into the history and cultural context of the pantsuit, starting with the outfits of The X-Files heroine Dana Scully. “The power suit, donned by a woman, suggested the triumph of the women’s movement by suggesting the banality of the women’s movement,” she writes.
