Madeleine Albright on Civil Rights

 

 


It is hard to be the only woman in the room

It is very important for women to help each other. It is hard to be the only woman in the room. Having a support system is very important. When I was first in office, I had a group of women foreign ministers that were my friends throughout the world, and my little saying is that there's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other. Once you have climbed the ladder of success, you don't push it away from the building--you are only strengthened if there are more women.

Founded Vital Voices Initiative with Hillary Clinton

In 1997, following up on her assertion two years earlier, at the fourth U.N. Conference on Women in Beijing, that 'women's rights are human rights," Hillary and Secretary of State Madeleine Albright established the Vital Voices Democracy Initiative to promote the advancement of women's rights as an explicit goal of US foreign policy. Over the next three years, at conferences throughout the world, Vital Voices brought together thousands of women leaders from 80 countries. In 2000, American women who were involved in the government initiative and who wanted the project to continue formed a new non-governmental organization, Vital Voices Global Partnership, and aligned with other women around the world who began their own chapters.

Vital Voices invests in emerging women leaders to give them the tools they need to advance peace and reconciliation, run successful businesses, participate fully in their nation's political life, and combat trafficking in women and girls and other abusive practices.
