Hillary Clinton said the “future is female” in a video message to the 2017 MAKERS Conference in California.
In a videotaped message to the conference that focuses on empowering women, Clinton said: “Despite all the challenges we face, I remain convinced that, yes, the future is female,” according to USA Today.
“We need strong women to step up and speak out. We need you to dare greatly and lead boldly,” said Clinton, who has stayed out of the public spotlight since losing the presidential election in November. “So please, set an example for every woman and girl out there who’s worried about what the future holds and wonders whether our rights, opportunities and values will endure.”
“Remember, you are the heroes and history makers, the glass ceiling breakers of the future. As I’ve said before, I’ll say again, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world,” Clinton said.
The video served as the opening for the MAKERS Conference on Monday night, which took place in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, according to The Huffington Post.
In the message, Clinton mentioned the women’s marches that took place across the country and in some parts globally the day after President Donald Trump was sworn into office.
“Just look at the amazing energy we saw last month as women organized a march that galvanized millions of people all over our country and across the world,” Clinton said in the video.
Clinton posted on Twitter about the women's march.
Clinton also spoke with People magazine after attending Trump’s inauguration, and she offered her sentiments about the march.
“On Saturday, we watched women and men across this country and the globe stand up, speak out, and peacefully march for those values with one voice,” Clinton said. “It was awe-inspiring. We have to keep up the momentum.”
“I will never stop believing in this country and our collective future,” Clinton told People Magazine. “We are still, and will always be, stronger together.”
The MAKERS conference is a platform that shares the stories of “trailblazing” women, according to CBS News.
