Hillary Clinton and Diane Sawyer step down memory lane

Hillary Clinton and Diane Sawyer took a trip down memory lane Tuesday night at the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation’s 25th-anniversary gala. Sawyer — who was presenting the former secretary of state with the Global Impact Award — recalled her time with Clinton at Wellesley College, when they were “young girls with coke-bottle glasses.” “One of us spent a lot of time having an identity crisis — that was me,” Sawyer told the crowd at the Best Buy Theater. “I went to law school and didn’t graduate, and ended up doing the weather in tight skirts and lamentably pointy bras.” Clinton was quick to set the record straight, saying, “Everything Diane said is inaccurate.” The evening also featured dramatic readings from Glaser’s memoir by Mary Steenburgen and former “ER” stars Julianna Margulies and Gloria Reuben, who we’re told became visibly emotional while reading the excerpt. Other guests in the house included Nigel Barker, Willow Bay and Miss Universe Gabriela Isler.

Congratulations, Mme. Secretary!

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton To Be Named 2013 Lantos Prize Laureate

November 7, 2013, WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Lantos Foundation for Human Rights and Justice today announced that it will award the 2013 Lantos Human Rights Prize, its highest honor, to Hillary Rodham Clinton. The Former Secretary of State will receive the award for her tireless efforts to promote human rights for women around the world and her groundbreaking work on promoting human rights through Internet freedom.  Former recipients of the Lantos Prize include the Dalai Lama, Elie Wiesel, Paul Rusesabagina and Chen Guangcheng. The award ceremony will take in Washington, DC on December 6, 2013. It will be open to press and coverage is invited. 

“Hillary Rodham Clinton has gained global recognition for her leadership in so many critical arenas, but we are particularly proud to recognize the enormous contributions she has made to human rights causes,” said Katrina Lantos Swett, President of the Lantos Foundation. “Her proclamation that ‘women’s rights are human rights’ changed the way the world thinks about human rights and opened doors for women in a way that only Hillary Clinton could. Furthermore, Secretary Clinton’s  pioneering work on Internet Freedom has  focused worldwide attention on the urgent need to “tear down the walls” of closed societies that seek to imprison their citizens behind internet firewalls that have become the iron curtains of this “virtual” century, She has also provided a powerful intellectual framework for advancing this central human right of our time.”

In nearly four decades of public service, Hillary Rodham Clinton has served as an advocate, attorney, First Lady, United States Senator and most recently as Secretary of State of the United States. Though she has championed a number of issues ranging from education to health care, Secretary Clinton is revered in the human rights community for her 1995 Beijing speech where she boldly stood up for women’s rights and became a true global champion for those issues. She also broke new ground in 2010 when she declared that governments that fail to allow for Internet freedoms are not only attempting to crush dissent, but to deny human rights.
