Abstract

Hillary Rodham Clinton as the First Lady was the most empowered presidential wife in the American history addressing women’s issues nationally and internationally. Besides engaging in American women’s and children’s inequality issues, Hillary Clinton got involved in addressing women’s problems in Latin America, Asia and Africa, as she believed women and girls are often community’s greatest untapped resource, which makes investing in them a powerful and effective way to promote international development.
