CLINTON CONFIRMATION: Women’s Rights And Sexual Slavery « The Washington Independent

Jul 31, 2020
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) brings up an overlooked point: “No woman or girl should have to grow up and face persecution for having being born female.” Asks if Clinton will commit to legislation “to help fight this immorality.”
Obviously, Clinton has made women’s rights one of her calling cards. “I pledge to you that I view these issues as central to our foreign policy.” She ties it to the Taliban’s insurgency, devoted to “keeping women unfed, uneducated, unhealthy.” This “is not culture, this is not custom, this is criminal.” Good line. “We can not have a free, prosperous, peaceful, progressive world if women are treated in such a discriminatory and violent way.” Pledges to “revie[w] your legislation, and working with you as a continuing partner.”
