Hillary Clinton Gives A Rousing Message Of Resistance On International Women's Day!

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 23% think Clinton should seek the mayoralty, while 19% are not sure. They are the history-makers, the glass-ceiling breakers of tomorrow.

Without mentioning the notable setback of losing the United States election to Donald Trump, Clinton expanded on some of her methods for recovering-"sleeping, a little soul-searching and reflecting, long walks in the woods".

Standing in solidarity with women on Wednesday, Clinton shared a tweet from a friend of a teacher who posted a picture of a scrap of paper she said came from one of her friend's fourth graders. Her Opponent: What if Donald Trump was a woman?

'Our voices have always been vital but they have never been more vital than they are right now.


Clinton made no mention of Trump or of the campaign directly.

"Life hands all of us setbacks", Clinton, the luncheon's keynote speaker, said to a crowd of roughly 1,000 who had gathered to hear her speak at a Marriott hotel in NY.

"But we kept checking in with each other and realized that this disruption - a major change in perception - was happening. What matters is that you get back up, and keep going".

The simplicity of Trump's message became easier for people to hear when it was coming from a woman - that was a theme. "I had an unsettled feeling the whole way through". In some ways, I developed empathy for people who voted for him by doing this project, which is not what I was expecting.


Speaking at the 16th annual Vital Voices Global Leadership Awards, an event honoring women in leadership roles, Clinton said Wednesday that women's voices "have never been more vital than they are right now", especially in politics.

"We heard a lot of "now I understand how this happened"-meaning how Trump won the election", he added".

Clinton's inspirational message resonated with many who saw this call-to-action as an opportunity to mobilize women to continue protesting against controversial legislation, like the potential defunding of Planned Parenthood. It can seem discouraging, whether you've been on that road for a long time or are just starting out.
