Watch Hillary Clinton's Iconic Human Rights Speech

In this excerpt from AOL MAKERS's film "MAKERS: Once and For All," Hillary Clinton, then First Lady, gives what would be become an iconic speech at the UN Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, in 1995. 

Clinton, Andrea Mitchell, Melanne Verveer, and others discuss the tension surrounding her speech, the audience's wild response, and her now-famous declaration, radical for the time, that "human rights are women's rights, and women's rights are human rights, once and for all."
