Hillary’s Agenda Moving Forward-

In the news today “a bipartisan coalition, led by Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) in the Senate and Congressmen Bill Delahunt (D-Mass.) and Ted Poe (R-Texas) in the House, will introduce the International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA). Introduction of this bill supports the efforts of President Obama and Secretary Clinton to rightly put women at the very center of a broad global security agenda that factors in the great challenges of our decade and invests in the world’s peacemakers.

My, my – doesn’t that sound familiar? But we see where Hillary’s name appears? Oh well, I am sure she is pleased to see that her “Women’s rights are human rights agenda is moving forward- even if it seems, at least to me, that she gets little credit. Those of us who have followed her know where the idea came from and will give credit where credit is due. And I see that THIS bill has Bi-partisan support!

What we are learning around the world is that if women are healthy and educated, their families will flourish. If women are free from violence, their families will flourish. If women have a chance to work and earn as full and equal partners in society, their families will flourish.
Read the whole speech – Women’s Rights are Human Rights and remember!
