“I think that they thought that it was a soft issue. The bottom line that I decided was, actually, women's issues are the hardest issues because they are the ones that have to do with life and death in so many aspects; and because, as I said, it is really central to the way that we think about things.”

The former US Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, shares her stories from being the first woman in this position and how women’s issues are a central tenet of foreign policy. She also emphasizes her points by relating her experiences at the UN and the various international conflicts where women’s issues were central elements in their solutions.
