Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke to her love of theater and emphasized the importance of women’s equality on Broadway and elsewhere at a women’s event Tuesday.

Speaking at the New Amsterdam Theatre, Clinton employed her theater references, ranging from “King Lear” to the diversity of the 2017 Broadway season to director Rachel Chakvin’s Tony Awards speech, to comment on current politics and her own frequent attendance on Broadway. At the heart of her speech was a call for women to speak up, whether it be through dramatic art or within the workplace.

“I feel a strong obligation to keep talking about the great unfinished business of the 21st century, namely expanding the rights, opportunities and full participation in every aspect of society by women and girls,” Clinton said. “And of course that includes the theater.”

Mrs. Clinton delivered the keynote address at the meeting of the Group of Friends of Women in Afghanistan, held barely two weeks after the signing of a peace deal between Washington and the Taliban.

The agreement calls for the insurgent group to participate in intra-Afghan peace talks which were to begin that day. It also covers a timetable for the withdrawal of foreign troops.

“Women must be included, and women’s rights respected, as part of any peace negotiation in Afghanistan”, said Mrs. Clinton.

“Women are essential to combating corruption, building economic growth and ensuring the longevity of any agreement that is reached.  If women are sidelined, the prospects for sustainable peace are slim. If society is torn apart and women pushed to the margins, it is more likely that terrorists will find a haven. There can be no sustainable peace without women’s participation and rights”.

Your guide to what’s hot in London

A parade of stars, some with two legs and others with four, have trotted through Berlin this week as the city celebrates the 70th edition of its annual film festival. Cate Blanchett, Javier Bardem, Sigourney Weaver, Riz Ahmed, Johnny Depp, Bill Nighy and more have all braved the freezing rain on the red carpet. And yet the festival’s biggest celebrity guest, as befits a cinematic summit that prides itself on political engagement over escapist entertainment, was not Hollywood royalty but Washington aristocracy.

Hillary Rodham Clinton was promoting director Nanette Burstein’s four-hour TV documentary series, Hillary. Though unashamedly partial, Burstein’s screen biography is still admirably thorough, probing Clinton’s marital problems, electoral failures and prickly relations with Bernie Sanders.

However, the former Democratic presidential contender was diplomatic about Sanders in Berlin. “I have my own feelings about him and whether he can win or not,” Clinton said on Tuesday. “But if he is the nominee I will support him, because I think any Democrat is better than Donald Trump.”

She also used her visit to affirm the role of film and TV in countering Trumpian populism. “Culture could not be more important at this moment,” she said. “The other side plays on fear, anxiety, insecurity, resentment and grievance. It’s really critically important to fight back against this very strong tide.”

When high-powered Washington women sit down for a fireside chat, they it just like the men do, but in a ballroom and in heels.

Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg hosted her 11th-annual DVF Awards in Washington instead of New York Wednesday night, and the marquee honoree sitting down for a “fireside chat” at the Library of Congress was Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Also present at the high-powered, by-invitation-only event held: Hillary Rodham Clinton, US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, supermodels Iman and Karlie Kloss. CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin and CBS News anchor Norah O’Donnell. National librarian Carla Hayden. Random local news anchors and politicians. Washington Post Executive Editor Marty Baron and a handful of other men in suits.
