I present to you: Hillary Rodham-Clinton
This former secretary of state and potential presidential candidate in 2016 had a pretty big week. I don’t feel like she needs much more introduction than that. She came out in support of gay marriage and the rights of all Americans in a video produced for the organization the Human Rights Campaign. It is wonderful to see more and more people finally telling the world where they stand on this issue and especially wonderful to see a woman with so much power join in the conversation.
In an article by the Huffington Post Hillary is highlighted as saying “I believe America is at its best when we champion the freedom and dignity of every human being.’’ She couldn’t be more right in my opinion, if we were all on the same playing field then America would be a much more pleasant place to live. I also really enjoyed how she made her statement personal by highlighting Chelsea’s (her daughter) wedding and how she hopes thinks all parents should be able to experience that joy.
I can’t wait to see what else she does in the coming months following the end of her time as secretary of state. I expect big things Ms. Rodham-Clinton!
Who is your woman of the week?
