Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was back behind the podium Friday to give remarks at the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security as part of an awards ceremony in her name.
In a 19-minute speech, the former New York Senator and Democratic presidential nominee spoke about the integration of women and girls into peace and security proceedings and warned of the Trump Administration’s approach to international affairs.
“We are seeing signals of a shift that should alarm us all,” she said. “This Administration’s proposed cuts to international health, development and diplomacy would be a blow to women and children, and a grave mistake for our country.”
Her comments, which highlighted the Institute’s evidence-based approach, included a few barbed words apparently aimed at President Trump.
“Studies show – here I go again, talking about research, evidence and facts – but in fact when women are included in peace negotiations, agreements are less likely to fail and more likely to last,” she said.
