NEW YORK-Hillary Clinton delivered a rousing speech on women's rights Friday, insisting that empowering women is a "core imperative" for society if the United States is to enjoy economic success and remain a global leader.
Speaking at the Women in the World Summit organized by Tina Brown, editor-in-chief of Newsweek The Daily Beast, Clinton acknowledged women "have come so far" in areas including politics and in the workplace. But she called gender equality the "unfinished business of the 21st century"-not just in developing countries, but in the U.S., where women continue to be "marginalized" when it comes to access to education and their ability to receive a salary equal to their male peers.
"For many American women, the dream of upward mobility the American dream remains elusive," Clinton declared. "No country can achieve its full economic potential when women are left out or left behind."
"Women are not victims. We are agents of change. We are drivers of progress," Clinton declared. Clinton's remarks weren't overly political, but her speech came amid speculation about a potential 2016 presidential run. The former first lady made no mention of her political future. But in introducing her, Brown made an oblique reference to the frenzy over whether Clinton will run for president.
"The big question for Hillary now is what's next," Brown said, prompting the crowd of several hundred women in the audience to stand and cheer wildly.
Clinton, who stood next to Brown, laughed and smiled, but she said nothing.

Any heterosexuals in da room?
“What difference does it make?!”
Post a link to Secretary of State Hillary saying Islamic nations treatment of women is horrid.
She passed on being able to help millions of women around the world.
(two of many)
Good ole carpetbagger. Riding in on Bill. Now it’s her turn. She would not be nothing if it were not for Bill. She is another communist dried out from the 60’s movement.
The only woman this hag wants to empower is herself.
What difference does it make?!
There is a Hudson Brothers movie,Hysterical and a line in the movie that was repeated over and over is , What difference does it make?!
The Green Revolution Gals sure could have used some help Hilary, think about if we would have helped them.
Just maybe Iran would be in a much better position now, far less hostile to the west.
But that isn't what her Muslim Brotherhood masters wanted.
This is all they have: turning people against people. Victimization, exaggeration, their own brand of racism and sexism.
Disgusting people each and every one of them.
It says a lot about where we are as a country when politicians are cheered for “empowering” certain groups rather than respecting the rights of all.
But of course, if politicians couldn’t keep people fighting amongst themselves, they wouldn’t be able to get away with half the BS they do.
Hitlery won’t be happy until all men are dead. Barack is the son of an ‘empowered’ woman. No thanks.
Pick your special interest group and grab with both hands.
Pretty soon all the special interests are going to start grabbing each other.
There are more women than men in college right now in the United States.
"Empowering women isn't just the right thing, it's the necessary thing. And because women are increasingly ruling, the world is changing for the better."
What does Huma and her family have to say about that?
I love that movie. Too bad it never got more exposure.
With Amalek on the march it would be wise to empower the women.
