An Exclusive Message from Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton | The 2019 MAKERS Conference
At the 2019 MAKERS Conference, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivers an exclusive message about the key to accelerating the women’s movement: all of us. From the innovators and entrepreneurs, to the trailblazers and changeMAKERS, all of us must come together to get the job done.
HILLARY CLINTON: Hello, Makers. I wish I could be there with you because this is such an important time. More than at any other point in my life, women are coming together to tackle big problems and rewrite old rules. And I am energized and encouraged by the diverse group of women everywhere who are speaking out-- speaking out against inequality, and bigotry, and racism, and homophobia, and organizing to create change in their communities and our country, refusing to give in to cynicism or fear. You know, the tidal wave of women and young people running for office is helping to build an America that's not only kinder, fairer, bigger-hearted, but safer, stronger, and more secure. And as Speaker Nancy Pelosi-- doesn't that sound great-- has proved yet again, it often takes a woman to get the job done. I've said for many years, and I believe more fiercely than ever today, that standing up for the rights and opportunities for women and girls is the unfinished business of the 21st century. Finishing that business is going to take all of us-- innovators and entrepreneurs, athletes and activists, trailblazers and changemakers, and also women and men. This is a pivotal moment. And all together, I believe there is nothing we can't do. So here's to the work ahead. And I look forward to working with you every step of the way.
