How Hillary Clinton inspires Working Women across India!

07

Hillary Rodham Clinton, though sitting miles across the Pacific, was fighting her own fight just like all of us. Women across the globe just lost a piece of themselves. The world’s oldest democracy failed on it’s promise on delivering a White House occupant who would have probably stood with both feet forward for women’s rights.

She may have lost the presidential race, but she won millions of hearts.

You might not approve of her political stances, but you’d agree she has been a source of inspiration and immense hope for women across the globe. She knows what it is like to be a woman – balancing work and raising a family.

She was not born into politics. She did not marry into politics. Her path in life was not handed to her with a million-dollar loan from her parents. In fact, one of her first jobs was working at a salmon cannery in Alaska. She knows what it’s like to fight her way to the top of the corporate ladder in a male-dominated field.


The most inspirational quotes, that every working woman in India would relate to:

Here are some of her most inspiring quotes from the electoral season:

 

  1. “Whether I am meant to or not, I challenge assumptions about women. I do make some people uncomfortable, which I’m well aware of, but that’s just part of coming to grips with what I believe is still one of the most important pieces of unfinished business in human history—empowering women to be able to stand up for themselves.”

  2. “Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights.”

  3. “There is a sense that things, if you keep positive and optimistic about what can be done, do work out.”

  4. “In too many instances, the march to globalization has also meant the marginalization of women and girls. And that must change.”

  5. “It is past time for women to take their rightful place, side by side with men, in the rooms where the fates of peoples, where their children’s and grandchildren’s fates, are decided.”

  6. “Dignity does not come from avenging insults, especially from violence that can never be justified. It comes from taking responsibility and advancing our common humanity.

  7. “Don’t confuse having a career with having a life.”

  8. “Like it or not, women are always subject to criticism if they show too much feeling in public.”

  9. “We need to understand that there is no formula for how women should lead their lives. That is why we must respect the choices that each woman makes for herself and her family. Every woman deserves the chance to realise her God-given potential.”

  10. “Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world.”

  11. “If women are healthy and educated, their families will flourish. If women are free from violence, their families will flourish. If women have a chance to work and earn as full and equal partners in society, their families will flourish. And when families flourish, communities and nations will flourish.”

  12. “I have always believed that women are not victims, we are agents of change, we are drivers of progress, we are makers of peace — all we need is a fighting chance.”
