Secretary Clinton: “The way we build peace isn’t getting the job done” #hwhtw

Yesterday, Secretary Clinton gave a speech at Georgetown University on “Women, Peace, and Security.”  A striking excerpt:

“Now I know some of you may be thinking to yourself, ‘Well, there she goes again.  Hillary Clinton always talks about women, and why should I or anyone else really care?’  Well, you should care because this is not just a woman’s issue.  It cannot be relegated to the margins of international affairs.  It truly does cut to the heart of our national security and the security of people everywhere, because the sad fact is that the way the international community tries to build peace and security today just isn’t getting the job done.  Dozens of active conflicts are raging around the world, undermining regional and global stability, and ravaging entire populations.  And more than half of all peace agreements fail within five years.”
