Power and the World's Women (49:43)

FREE PREVIEW

In 1995, while still First Lady, Hillary Clinton made a groundbreaking speech in Beijing, setting down a challenge to world leaders: to treat women’s rights as human rights. She highlighted abuses including young girls sold into slavery; women raped as a tool of war; lack of education for girls. Since then, three women – Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and of course Clinton herself – have done one of the world’s most powerful jobs, as US Secretary of State. In candid interviews, these three former Secretaries of State talk about what it’s like being a woman at the centre of power, how they personally tried to change things and about the political challenges of improving the lives of women across the world. The film reveals the shocking extent of abuses in some developing countries and conflict zones and asks what Western politicians should – and should not – do to promote women’s rights and equality. And as the US waits to hear if Hillary Clinton will make a second attempt at the US presidency, the film asks if America is ready to break the biggest glass ceiling of all – and what a woman President of the USA could do for the world’s women?

Description

In 1995, while still First Lady, Hillary Clinton made a groundbreaking speech in Beijing, setting down a challenge to world leaders: to treat women’s rights as human rights. She highlighted abuses including young girls sold into slavery; women raped as a tool of war; and lack of education for girls. Since then, three women—Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice, and of course Clinton herself—have done one of the world’s most powerful jobs as U.S. Secretary of State. In candid interviews, these former Secretaries of State talk about what it’s like being a woman at the center of power, how they personally tried to change things, and about the political challenges of improving the lives of women across the world. The film reveals the shocking extent of abuses in some developing countries and conflict zones, and asks what Western politicians should—and should not—do to promote women’s rights and equality. And in the U.S., as Hillary Clinton makes a second attempt at the U.S. presidency, the film asks if America is ready to break the biggest glass ceiling of all—and what a woman President of the U.S.A. could do for the world’s women?
