Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke via video to a women in the workforce conference held in Japan. In her remarks, Clinton spoke about the lack of paid family leave in the United States. She said, “The United States, unfortunately, is one of a handful of developed countries without paid family leave.” In Japan, a portion of paid family leave is guaranteed. Clinton also discussed the inequality of pay for women, and in particular the lack of women in some industries, particularly Silicon Valley.
