Thursday night, Hillary Clinton was the keynote speaker at the Women in the World Summit. The annual event, created by editrix Tina Brown, brings “women leaders, activists and political change-makers from around the world to share their stories, and offer solutions to building a better life for women and girls.” Perusing the topics, it’s three days of “sustainability,” “self-esteem,” and “safe spaces” — i.e., goo-goo platitudes to make upper-middle-class attendees feel better about themselves while accomplishing nothing.
Clinton’s speech was the usual bloodless shrug of support for women who have been victimized by mean men, bad governments, and an unfair world. But halfway through the pabulum, Hillary made a statement that is raising more than a few eyebrows.
