Hillary Clinton

UN women’s rights speech

5 Sep, 1995

Clinton talks about women’s rights in a speech to the U.N. 4th World Conference on Women:

We focus world attention on issues that matter most in our lives — the lives of women and their families: access to education, health care, jobs and credit, the chance to enjoy basic legal and human rights and to participate fully in the political life of our countries. What we are learning around the world is that if women are healthy and educated, free from violence, and have a chance to work and earn as full and equal partners in society, their families will flourish. When families flourish, communities and nations do as well. Human rights are women’s rights and women’s rights are human rights.
