Women in the World Summit

Thursday, April 3, 2014

Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared at the 5th Annual Women in the World Summit in New York City Thursday evening. Clinton appeared on stage with Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund , and spoke about a wide variety of topics including partisanship, the media, Russia, and the portrayal of women. Clinton advised young women who were beginning their careers to be prepared to play “an outside and inside game,” She explained, “On the outside, you have to find ways to raise these issues that are truly rooted in sexism or in old-fashioned irrelevant expectations about women’s lives, not just to score a point but to change a mind.”

Clinton also made headlines when she met members of the Russian band Pussy Riot. Members of the band were imprisoned in Russia in 2012 for protesting and speaking out against Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The video above is only part of the event, as are the other two videos below. Once a full video from the event is available, it will be posted.
