Clinton: Women Must Be ‘Fearless’

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said at the third annual Women in the World Summit on Saturday that women must “reject any efforts to marginalize any one of us.” “We must be fearless,” said Clinton, who was the final speaker at the conference. Clinton was introduced by Meryl Streep, who held up her Oscar and said, “This is what you get for playing a world leader, but this is what you get when you are one,” as Clinton walked on stage. Clinton recapped the three-day summit, which included powerful panels led by Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee, former secretary of State Madeleine Albright, and testimony read by actress Angelina Jolie. Streep said that she felt the summit was like being “plugged into an energy source: it’s bigger than oil, coal—it’s girls!”
