Hilary Clinton, Secretary of State | April 1, 2010
Fifteen years after the Fourth UN Conference on Women, the condition of women worldwide has greatly improved: more and more girls go to school, and the equality between men and women is increasingly being recognised jurisdictionally. ++ Yet, more efforts have to be made. ++ "The status of the world's women is not only a matter of morality and justice. ++ It is also a political, economic and social imperative. " ++ Promoting and implementing concrete advancement of woman should be a top priority for American foreign policy.
