Hillary Clinton’s War for Women’s Rights

“Welcome to Hillary’s war: In this week’s Newsweek, Gayle Tzemach Lemmon digs into the secretary of state’s fight to bring attention to the plight of women and girls across the world, championing opportunity and equality for women wherever she goes.

“Newsweek traveled to the Middle East with Clinton in January. Her timing—just as a wave of uprisings was gathering steam—was uncanny. In a raucous town-hall meeting in Yemen, Clinton addressed how young girls can contribute to a society desperate for change. Later, at a stop in Papua New Guinea, she surprised her own entourage when she pushed the nation’s prime minister to take domestic abuse seriously—and said she’d be dispatching her deputy for women’s affairs, Melanne Verveer, to check up on his progress.

Book Discussion: The Dressmaker of Khair Khana

If you’re in the D.C. area, join the Women’s Foreign Policy Group for a discussion of The Dressmaker of Khair Khana with author (and HWHTW favorite) Gayle Tzemach Lemmon.

“In The Dressmaker of Khair Khana, journalist and author Gayle Tzemach Lemmon tells the story of Kamela Sediqi, the unlikely breadwinner who became an entrepreneur in Afghanistan under the Taliban. Desperate to support her brothers and sisters and unable to earn a living outside the home, she started a dressmaking business in her living room which offered work to 100 women in her community. Together these unsung heroines made the difference between survival and starvation for their families under Taliban rule.”
