Whatever words people contacted by polling organizations associate with Hillary Clinton, women all over the globe associate Hillary Clinton with the speech.  This is that speech.  These are the words that billions of women associate with Hillary.

Today is the 20th anniversary of this speech.  It has been posted here before.  I once had the pleasure of watching my TA from China listening to it for the first time.   I am posting it again.  There is always someone who has not seen or heard it.  Here is that speech thanks to the Clinton Presidential Library.

Dear Friend,

I’ve seen Bill take on many roles over the years — from father to grandfather, from public servant to philanthropist — but everything he’s done in his life has been tied together in his belief that if we work together, tomorrow can be better than today.

When Bill left the White House, he opened the Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas with a vision to continue his life’s work of strengthening communities and empowering people everywhere to live their best life story.

This year we’re marking a full 10 years since the Clinton Presidential Center first opened its doors.

On behalf of the Clinton Foundation, I want to invite you to commemorate this moment, and to thank Bill for the lifetime of service that I hope you admire as much as I do.

Click here to send a personal note of congratulations to Bill to celebrate 10 years of the Clinton Presidential Center.

Bill has devoted his life to making sure people everywhere can achieve their dreams, whether it’s increasing access to life-saving HIV/AIDS medicine in Africa, helping children here in the United States live healthier lifestyles and overcome obesity, or helping more people in more places around the world get access to clean water, clean air, education, and economic opportunity. Bill has always believed we have to put people first, and that’s still at the core of the work we do here at the Clinton Foundation and at the Clinton Presidential Center. The measure is simple — are people better off than when we started? For millions around the world, the answer is yes.

I hope you’ll join me in saying thank you and congratulations on 10 years of the Clinton Presidential Center.

Send your personal note of celebration today.

Sincerely,

Hillary Rodham Clinton

Hillary and Chelsea Clinton took the stage at the 10th Anniversary of the Clinton Presidential Center today to discuss the progress of their No Ceilings initiative.

Screenshot 2014-11-15 18.53.54

Hillary began by explaining that the objective of  No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project is to gather data to measure the progress of women and girls from the time of her speech in Beijing to the target date of 2016, the 20th anniversary of that speech.   She framed three questions:

  1. What was the agenda?
  2. What has been accomplished?
  3. What is left to do?

She noted that progress has been made extending elementary education and some secondary education to girls, more needs to be done to confront infant mortality, and a great deal must be done for women to be perceived as members of the formal labor force and to be included in the formal economy.  Identification of barriers to inclusion is essential.  Provision of child care so that women can fully participate in a transformed workplace is a goal.

Chelsea then explained that Beijing was a long time ago (“Don’t remind me!” Hillary added).  She stressed the role of technology and said that Facebook is the largest community of women in the world and that progress must be measured via data.

An example Chelsea offered is the impact of ebola.  She called it a caregivers’ disease which results in caregivers,  largely women, also contracting the disease and succumbing in high numbers, but a tangential effect, she pointed out, was the reduction in available women to perform midwife duties and care for newborns resulting in increased infant and maternal mortality.

Key to today’s discussion were questions of what works and what models are scalable and flexible enough to be modified as needed for different cultures and environments.

Hillary spoke about micro-loans and how that model has been successful in preventing dreams from “dying in bank parking lots,” as a young woman once told her.  Barriers here include husbands who want to control the assets once the women get the loans.

Guest speakers were local.  Annette Dove talked about “Changing Steps” which is meant to inspire and mentor young people from disadvantaged homes to reach higher education goals.  Dove spoke of an “imagination gap” that needs to be closed in such communities.

Pierre Ferrari spoke about Heifer, of which he is CEO and which provides livestock after training.  Chelsea mentioned that her late grandmother, Dorothy Rodham, gave her a heifer for Christmas every year,  Ferrari said the organization donates 1.5 million animals a year mostly to women who, he said, do 70% of the labor.  Training includes care of the animal (the asset)  and handling the profits.   Ferrari said 85% of the decisions are made by women and that data shows that once they have proven their economic skills in the home, the husbands of the women tend to support their participation in the larger economic community.

Hillary, at this point, mentioned the book Beatrice’s Goat, a true story for which she wrote the foreword.  Beatrice of the story went on to study in the U.S.,  interned for Hillary in her Senate office, and eventually got a master’s degree from the Clinton School in public policy.

Hillary also said that the barriers to women’s progress is often surprising.  Chelsea offered the recently reported forced sterilizations in India wherein the mothers-in-law are often the ones forcing the daughters-in-law to be sterilized after the requisite number of sons have been produced.   One cannot help but notice the proprietary role the mother-in-law takes in such a case coming right on the heels of the livestock discussion.  Daughters-in-law are not goats.

Anna Strong from Arkansas Children’s Hospital spoke of several programs offered through the hospital’s auspices including HIPPY (encouraging parents to begin teaching children at home), a health center run out of an elementary school, and an advocacy group for children and families.  Hillary added that HIPPY began in Israel during the wave of Ethiopian immigration.  As FLOAR Hillary had the founder visit Arkansas.

I lost the feed, and sadly did not get the name of the next excellent speaker who spoke of a single-parent scholarship fund model that began with two funds and has been replicated to 62 funds (eminently scalable).  She noted that the funds make a permanent dent in poverty and raise the overall education level in the state.

The key word for the day was, as I said earlier, scalability.  All of these programs can be replicated with necessary modifications.   The key, as Hillary, Chelsea, and other speakers emphasized is what works.  No single formula works everywhere.  Hillary stressed that policy decisions should be based on evidence that a program or policy works (or does not work) and not upon ideology.

The Q&A that followed consisted entirely of people’s own creative ideas and models that they wanted to share rather than questions.  Well, after all, it was a Clinton event and people are used to CGI formats where you bring forth your ideas and projects.

There was a moment.  and it was adorable.  We all know that in addition to this No Ceilings initiative, Chelsea and Hillary also have an anti elephant-trafficking effort and Too Small to Fail to encourage parents to help their pre-schoolers be ready for reading and numbers.  Part of that effort involves talking to babies and exposing them to words.  At one point, Chelsea, in response to a remark by Hillary,  referred to “what Grandma said.”   I don’t think she even knew she did it, and Hillary did not seem to notice either.  In case you wondered what title Hillary bears most proudly, it is, obviously,  the one by which her daughter now refers to her.  It is also clear  with whom Chelsea spends much of her time conversing lately.  Earlier, she had said she was “shameless in appreciation of her daughter and her mother.”  Yes, Chelsea, we see that!  We also agree!

Little Rock, AR
Press Release

Events include a Symposium on the Clinton Administration, a convening of “No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project,” “Celebrate 10: A Community Concert,” and a Panel Discussion on the Positive Impact the Clinton Center has made in Central Arkansas

Friends, family, alumni, Foundation staff, volunteers and supporters, Clinton School students and the community will participate in a Day of Action for Little Rock, benefitting the Arkansas Foodbank

Little Rock, AR – A decade after the Clinton Presidential Center first opened its doors on November 18, 2004, President Bill Clinton, Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Chelsea Clinton will host “The Work Continues: Celebrating 10 Years of the Clinton Presidential Center,” a weekend-long series of events commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the Center and highlighting the work and impact of President Clinton’s lifetime of service held November 14-18.

The Clinton Center has served as a premiere educational and cultural venue, an extension of the classroom, and a cornerstone of the Little Rock community. The Clinton Center includes offices of the Clinton Foundation, the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum, and the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service. Located within a 30-acre park on the banks of the Arkansas River, the Clinton Center has helped revitalize downtown Little Rock.

Throughout his more than 45 years in public service, President Clinton’s work has spanned many roles – attorney general, governor, president, founder of the Clinton Foundation – and is all tied together by a singular commitment to building on what works and a belief that the future can be better than the present. Reflecting on the first 10 years of the Clinton Center, the weekend will highlight his continued commitment to strengthening communities and empowering people everywhere to live their best life story.

With support from Presenting Sponsor Coca-Cola, the Clinton Foundation has invited friends, family, alumni, and supporters to participate in the weekend. The events will kick off Friday with a Symposium on the Clinton Administration, in partnership with the Miller Center at the University of Virginia. As they have done for previous administrations, the Miller Center conducted an oral history project shortly after the end of the Clinton Administration and will present information from these interviews in three panel discussions featuring prominent former Administration officials on domestic policy, economic policy, and foreign policy including Alexis Herman, Former Secretary of Labor; Bruce Reed, Former Director of the Domestic Policy Council, Chief of Staff to Vice President Biden, and President of The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation; Gene Sperling, Former Director of the National Economic Council; Erskine Bowles, Former Chief of Staff to President Bill Clinton, and President Emeritus of the University of North Carolina; Mara Rudman, Deputy Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and Chief of Staff at the NSC, Deputy Assistant to the President and Executive Secretary to the NSC, Deputy Special Envoy for Middle East Peace at the Department of State, and Assistant Administrator for the Middle East at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID); Ambassador Nancy Soderberg, Former Alternate Representative to the United Nations, and Deputy Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs; and Gen. (Ret.) Wesley Clark, former NATO Supreme Allied Commander.

On Saturday afternoon, Secretary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton will convene a No Ceilings conversation about community-based solutions to advance economic opportunity for women and families locally and globally. No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project is an initiative led by Secretary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton to advance the full participation of women and girls around the world. This continues a series of convenings that No Ceilings has hosted, around the world on a variety of issues over the past year, to elevate discussions about full participation of women and girls.

On Saturday evening, the Clinton Foundation will host “Celebrate 10,” a musical event that will honor the spirit of the Arkansas community through an unforgettable night of storytelling and an inspirational call to serve. Held in partnership with the Arkansas Foodbank, the event encourages everyone to join the Clinton family – and special guests – to give back by collecting food to feed Arkansas’s hungry through the holidays. More details will be announced shortly.

On Sunday, friends, family, alumni, Foundation staff volunteers and supporters, Clinton School students, and others will participate in a Day of Action for Little Rock, also benefitting the Arkansas Foodbank.

Every year, as a “thank you” to the Central Arkansas community, the Clinton Center offers four free-admission days, including one commemorating the anniversary of the grand opening on November 18. Visitors are encouraged to tour both the permanent exhibits, which tell the story of the Clinton Administration, and the temporary exhibits, which give visitors an opportunity to always see something new.
