As Hillary Clinton makes “herstory” by becoming the first woman to be a major political party’s nominee for president, Women in the World looks back at some of the highlights from her 6 appearances at our annual Summit in New York.
2015: “There has never been a better time in history to be born female.”
Highlights: her mother as her “earliest inspiration” and women being “agents of change”
2014: “Not right now”
Tom Friedman jokingly tried to get Clinton to commit to running: “Madame Secretary, is there any other job you’d be interested in? I mean… Comptroller of the state of Illinois, or something? You know what I mean…” But, she didn’t take the bait.
Highlights: women’s rights as an economic issue and the double standard for women.
2013: “It is no coincidence that so many of the countries that threaten regional and global peace are the very places where women and girls are deprived of dignity and opportunity.”
