"I have said in many different settings on, I guess, every continent except Antarctica that the rights that women who have a position in society are able to command cannot, therefore, be denied to the women who live down the street or care for their children or clean their homes or plant their crops, and that we have to do a better job of making the equity argument on behalf of girls and women, and particularly on behalf of the Cairo agenda." --Secretary Clinton, January 8, 2010
When Hillary steps down as Secretary of State, she will be an emeritus stateswoman like no other. I cannot wait for her to start her own foundation work. I’ve heard some chatter about this in the blogosphere, and I really hope it comes to fruition someday.
Imagine it. The Hillary Rodham Clinton Foundation.
It can be a great tool to help institutionalize the Equity Argument on behalf of girls and women.
