Hillary Clinton is back this week, and delivered two speeches on women’s issues. Hillary’s advocacy for women is one of the many reasons most of us are hoping for a 2016 presidential run. Ms. Clinton may have hinted at a run when she stated, “Around the world where too many women are still treated at best as second-class citizens, at worst as some kind of subhuman species…the business is still unfinished here at home in the United States, we have come so far together but there’s still work to be done.” Or maybe she just rocks. Women are still a key factor for Republicans to bring legitimacy to their party as the GOP attempts to morph into a more inclusive group.
The New Civil Rights Movement reports, “Back on center stage once again, Citizen Hillary reemerged this week, hot as a firecracker and good to her word that she would work to advance the “unfinished business of the 21st century” to achieve freedom, dignity and equality for women and girls, when she delivered two major speeches on women’s issues, as well as a timely announcement of her forthcoming memoirs.
Ms. Clinton has been a consistent voice for women. She will win in 2016. Women rocked the vote last year, and we will again in the next election, then the one after that, ad infinitum. While Republicans attempt to undermine any progress already made for women, a woman is about to take the Oval Office. Many of us are pretty sure she’ll run. I hope we’re not wrong.
