But fighting to give women and girls a fighting chance isn’t a nice thing to-do. It isn’t some luxury that we get to when we have time on our hands to spend doing that . This is a core imperative for every human being and every society. If we do not complete a campaign for women’s rights and opportunities the world we want to live in the country we all love and cherish will not be what it should be.

Hillary backstage at Women in the World talking to Dr. Mamphela Ramphele, who is a South African presidential hopeful (and possibly first woman president in the country). She said to Hillary, “I want to see you complete the unfinished business.” They then went off for a private pow-wow. 

The feels.

Yes, all the feels.

Hillary Clinton’s rousing address at the 2012 Women in the World Summit was just her latest speech for women’s rights. From her 1995 Beijing address to her vocal advocacy for contraception, watch our mashup of her best.

if Lehman Brothers had been a bit more Lehman Sisters … we would not have had the degree of tragedy that we had as a result of what happened.

Tina and Angie chatting it up at the Women in the World summit at New York’s Lincoln Center, following a panel between Madeleine Albright and Charlie Rose.

Favorite (of many) quotes from that panel, about the price of war:

Charlie: “But Madeleine: Why aren’t there more women in power?”

Madeleine (who is sassy and amazing): “Men!”

The single word former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright says she’d use to describe herself, speaking with Charlie Rose about the price of war.
