Clinton: Clock 'turning back' for women

“[Fighting] to give women and girls a fighting chance isn’t just a nice thing to do,” Clinton writes in “The Shriver Report: A woman’s nation pushes back from the brink.” “It isn’t some luxury that we only get to when we have time on our hands. This is a core imperative for every human being in every society. If we do not continue the campaign for women’s rights and opportunities, the world we want to live in — and the country we all love and cherish — will not be what it should be.”

Clinton’s essay is part of the book’s broader examination of working women and the economic challenges many confront, a cause she champions in many of her public appearances.

“I think of the extraordinary sacrifices my mother made to survive her own difficult childhood, to give me not only life but also opportunity, along with love and inspiration,” Clinton writes. “I’m very proud of my own daughter, and I look at all these young women I’ve been privileged to work with or know through [daughter] Chelsea, and it’s hard to imagine turning the clock back on them. But in places throughout America large and small, the clock is turning back.”

Clinton points to a wide range of issues, from pay equity to work-family balance to life expectancy, as areas where women in the United States still face problems, though she also nods to gains in “business, academia, government—you name it.”

Contributors include pop star Beyonce Knowles-Carter, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and basketball star LeBron James.

The report comes as Democrats have intensified their focus on addressing income inequality issues, starting with the unemployment benefits extension currently under consideration in Congress.

What Hillary Clinton Did for Women (and Men) Everywhere

Clinton fought for women’s rights, encouraged entrepreneurship and made it okay to look your age

As Hillary Clinton contemplates her next move, one thing is clear: as secretary of state she changed the narrative on women by championing their social, political and economic rights around the world.

Clinton’s long-term commitment to the cause of women led her to create the position of United States Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues in the beginning of her term in 2009. The aim of the office is to ensure that women’s issues are fully integrated in the formulation and conduct of U.S. foreign policy.

“Hillary Clinton has been superb in shining a global spotlight on women’s rights and empowerment,” New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof told The Story Exchange.

Clinton visited more countries than any other secretary of state – clocking in close to a million miles of travel to 112 countries – and on most trips, visiting women’s projects, businesses and activists was a priority for her.
