Pursuing Equality Through Advocacy and Policy

This week we’re thinking of Hillary Clinton. Not just in the “glad she’s out of the hospital” way, but also in gratitude for all that she has done for women worldwide. She’s been an advocate for women throughout her personal life and professional career – from attorney to First Lady to senator to Secretary of State.

She’s broken so many glass ceilings in her lifetime, as the first female chair of the Legal Services Corporation, the first former First Lady of the United States to run for public office and the first former First Lady to serve in a president’s cabinet. And she has set an example for working mothers across the country by seamlessly balancing family and career.

In the face of gender-based bias, hateful attacks and systemic barriers, Hillary rose to the top, creating new opportunities for public dialogue about women’s rights.Let's show Hillary Rodham Clinton some gratitude! Tell her how much you appreciate her work for our nation.

As she prepares to step down from her post as Secretary of State, the Ms. Foundation is grateful for her leadership. And we’re mindful of the need to support more women as they fight for equality at all levels of leadership.

It’s perfectly fitting today that the Ms. Foundation announces the second year of its fellowship, funding a talented leader pursuing equality through advocacy and policy initiatives, as we celebrate Hillary’s accomplishments and wish her good health.
