Hillary Clinton and Global Women's Issues: An Enduring Legacy?

Tuesday, April 16, 2013 | Marvin Center Ampitheater, Third Floor


Hillary Clinton With Girls

Keynote speakers and a panel of experts weighed the impact of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emphasis on gender equality and women's empowerment. What institutional changes took place? What new initiatives were launched? Did the U.S. effectively benefit from the "soft power" of Secretary Clinton's long association with this issue? What has been the global impact? And what can we anticipate in the future?
