Hillary Clinton To Headline Lincoln Center 'Women In The World' Summit

NEW YORK CITY, NY — Hillary Clinton will be in New York City next week, but not to announce her rumored interest in this year’s mayoral race. The former New York Senator and Secretary of State will be speaking at Lincoln Center for the eight annual Women in the World Summit.

Clinton will headline the summit’s April 6 programming when she is interviewed live by New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof at Lincoln Center’s David Koch Theater, according to the summit’s website. There’s no indication as to which topics the conversation between Clinton and Kristof will cover, but it’s safe to say politics and women’s issues will likely dominate the discussion.

Since Clinton’s shocking loss to Donald Trump in last year’s presidential election the former first lady has kept a low profile, but has become more politically active recently. During a speech on St. Patrick’s day Clinton said the was “ready to come out of the woods,” alluding to a viral photo of Clinton hiking near her Chappaqua home after the election defeat, reported the New York Times.

The CK is Calvin Klein who sponsored the award ceremony/fundraiser for Save the Children last night at Cipriani.  The PreK of course refers to the age group upon which Hillary Clinton’s Too Small to Fail initiative is concentrating its attention.

Hillary received the organization’s National Legacy Award at the gala telling the audience,  “In the early years of a child’s life it’s as essential to feed their brains as their bodies.”   Mme. Secretary, congratulations on this wonderful honor!

From Save the Children’s Facebook page:

Had a fabulous evening honoring Hillary Clinton, Manny Chirico, the Bezos Family Foundation, Jennifer Garner and Virginia Almeida for their tremendous commitment to early-education for American children.

A very special thanks to Calvin Klein for hosting this phenomenal event!

And thank you to all who attended!

Here are some photos from the evening.  Our girl looks like a rose in bloom.

For the second day in a row, not only is Hillary Clinton honored for her work with children, but I am also impelled to make a fashion comment.  Monday evening she wore one of my favorite jackets, and last night she wore a dressed-up version of one of my other all-time favorites.  Many of you will remember this sweet number from 2009 – a more business-like version.  I love her new rose-colored satin version equally – pretty in pink and  beautiful in ruffles.


Sharing this article which contains some of what Hillary said and spotlights those pink ruffles as well.

“Literally, just about the only person not in black here tonight is Hillary,” one male guest said to his tablemates last night at the inaugural Save the Children gala presented by Calvin Klein. He was referring to the one-and-only Hillary Clinton. The former secretary of state was sporting a bubblegum-pink number, but she was all business when she accepted her National Legacy Award from the children’s rights and relief organization at Cipriani 42nd Street. As she made her way to the stage, the crowd, including Caroline Kennedy, Victor Cruz, Whoopi Goldberg, and Jennifer Garner (also an honoree for the evening), got to their feet to give Clinton a standing ovation.

“Whoopi Goldberg and I were just talking about how people in today’s world know what their favorite celebrity wore to dinner last night because of social media,” Clinton said. “Let’s use social media in a more effective way, to convey what brain scientists now know about brain development. Help us to try to build the best brains we can in America’s children, because there isn’t anything more important than doing that.”
