Hillary Clinton and Women's Rights
Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton (often called Hillary Clinton) was born in October 26th, 1947, in Chicago, US. She is an American politician, expected to be the 45th president of the US – the first woman president in U.S history in last November. Although she was defeated by Donald Trump in the race to the White House, her own words in the previous speeches are still meaningful up to now. Particularly, it is about her addresses for women's rights.
There were several speeches of hers relating to opinions about women's rights which were extremely intensive and impressive.To begin with, she assimilated women’s rights with human rights, “Human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights, once and for all”, said Clinton, as the First Lady of United Stateson September 5th, 1995, at the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing. “It is difficult to understand the new message which Mrs. Clinton wouldgive public in 1995,” according to Kathy Spillar, an executive director of a women's rights organization in the US in 2016. Looking back after 21 years, it may not be impressive as before, but its meaning can be inspirational to present. AP (Associated Press) believed that Clinton actually started forging her own identity on the world stage, separating from her husband at that time. At the conference, “We need to understand that there is no formula for how women should lead their lives. That is why we must respect the choices that each woman makes for herself and her family. Every woman deserves the chance to realize her God-given potential,” she confirmed. MelanneVerveer, Clinton's chief of staff at that time recalled that many participants were crying. In his memoir, Clinton wrote that although there were such reactions there, she still could not imagine that her 21-minute speech would become a manifesto of the women in the world.
True democracy was regarded as women’s rights and responsibilities by Hillary Clinton. At the Vital Voice Conference, in 1997, Austria, she argued: "There cannot be true democracy unless women's voices are heard. There cannot be true democracy unless women are given the opportunity to take responsibility for their own lives. There cannot be true democracy unless all citizens are able to participate fully in the lives of their country”."Whether I am meant to or not, I challenge assumptions about women. I do make some people uncomfortable, which I'm well aware of, but that's just part of coming to grips with what I believe is still one of the most important pieces of unfinished business in human history—empowering women to be able to stand up for themselves," she assured.
Thanks to Mrs. Clinton’s opinions, women should be empowered everywhere, from local institutions to international systems, which are equal to. "It is past time for women to take their rightful place, side by side with men, in the rooms where the fates of peoples, where their children's and grandchildren's fates, are decided," she confirmed, on another occasion.
People recognized that Hillary Clinton was optimistic person although she could not become president of the US. Her words in a recent speech “To all the women and especially the young women who put their faith in me I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion,” she said, and here she had to clear her throat. “I know we still have not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling but some day somebody will, and hopefully sooner than we might think right now.”
Like many famous American women, Hillary Clinton always highly appreciates the role of women in society. Notwithstanding her opinions of women’s rights are very close and easily to access. Maybe, it is one of the reasons why the former First Lady of US –Michelle Obama believed “Because I know that is the kind of president that Hillary Clinton will be” in a speech over the past few months.
