This International Women’s Day we wanted to highlight some of the incredible things that Hillary has done to empower women at home and across the globe. From her groundbreaking speech in Beijing where she inspired millions by declaring to the world that “Women’s rights are human rights,” to her work in the Senate championing fair pay and reproductive rights, Hillary has been a tireless advocate for women and girls her entire life.
- After graduating from Yale Law School in 1973, she worked for mothers and children at the Children’s Defense Fund
- As First Lady of Arkansas, she helped start Arkansas Advocates for Children & Families in 1977
- As First Lady of the United States, she helped create the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women in 1994
- As the Senator from New York, she co-sponsored the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act in 2005 and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2007
- As Secretary of State, she created the now-permanent position of Ambassador-At-Large for global women’s issues in 2009, and advanced women’s economic empowerment around the world
As President of the United States, Hillary will fight hard to give women every possible opportunity by ensuring equal pay for equal work, defending women’s health and reproductive rights, and promoting paid family leave and affordable child care.
