What up, Madam Secretary!

"We have to expand civil and political rights in countries that are plagued by poverty, hunger, and disease. But our pleas will fall on deaf ears unless democracy actually improves people's lives while weeding out the corruption that too often stands in the way of progress.
Our foreign policy must reflect our deep commitment to help millions of oppressed people around the world. And of particular concern to me is the plight of women and girls, who comprise the majority of the world's unhealthy, unschooled, unfed, and unpaid. If half the world's population remains vulnerable to economic, political, legal and social marginalization, our hope of advancing democracy and prosperity is in serious jeopardy. The United States must be an unequivocal and unwavering voice in support of women's rights in every country on every continent."

Go Hilary!

You never put up any of the things I say in quotes. Do you like Hilary better than you like me? You can't say yes because one time I gave you a back massage and it was really nice of me.

Women's literacy rates are directly related to birth rates. (Higher = lower, of course.)

Also, HRC > NKR
