U.S. Hillary Clinton congratulates on International Women's Day

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

March 8, 2011 (KATAKAMI.COM) —- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has congratulated the international society with the International Women’s Day stressing the important role of women in the present-day world, as reported by RIA Novosti on Tuesday.

“March 8th is the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. The United States continues to make women a cornerstone of our foreign policy. It’s not just the right thing to do. It’s the smart thing. Women and girls drive our economies. They build peace and prosperity. Investing in them means investing in global economic progress, political stability, and greater prosperity for everyone – the world over,” she said.

International Women’s Day, based on National Women’s Day in the U.S., was first proposed in 1910 by Clara Zetkin, an influential socialist German politician and a fighter for women’s rights. Zetkin intended it as a call to women around the world to battle for equal rights.

“So let us mark this day by finding ways to ensure women and girls’ access to education, healthcare, jobs, and credit, and to protect their right to live free from violence,” Clinton added.  (*)

November 29, 2010 WASHINGTON (KATAKAMI / AP) – Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the leak of hundreds of thousands of secret diplomatic documents is an attack not only on the United States but also the international community.

In her first public comments since the weekend release of the classified State Department cables, Clinton said Monday that online whistleblower Wikileaks acted illegally in posting the material. She said the Obama administration was “aggressively pursuing” those responsible for the leak.

She said the leaks erode trust between nations. But Clinton also said she was “confident” that U.S. partnerships would withstand the challenges posed by the latest revelations. (*)
