• When we liberate the economic potential of women, we elevate the economic performance of communities, nations, and the world... There is a stimulative and ripple effect that kicks in when women have greater access to jobs and the economic lives of our countries: Greater political stability. Fewer military conflicts. More food. More educational opportunity for children... By harnessing the economic potential of all women, we boost opportunity for all people.

    "Women Are Key to Global Economy". Hillary Clinton’s speech at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation 2011 CEO Summit, September 16, 2011.
