It's that time again!!!! The newest member of our #BOSSLADIES collection is here and it's the original champion of women's rights, the one and only Hillary Clinton.
Leading the U.S. delegation to the U.N. Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, then-First Lady Hillary Clinton proudly declared that “women’s rights are human rights.” She called out human rights abuses by the Chinese government against women and girls, helped to cast a global spotlight on gender-based violence, and issued a call to action heard around the world.
As first lady, she worked to increase funding for child care, and she fought for family leave for new parents and families caring for a sick loved one. As senator from New York, she and Senator Patty Murray of Washington waged a fight to protect women’s health and make emergency contraception available over the counter. She championed the Paycheck Fairness Act and co-sponsored the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to help ensure equal pay for women’s work and she proposed national paid sick leave as well as paid parental leave to all federal employees.
As secretary of state, she championed programs to advance women’s economic participation, address gender-based violence, and elevate the status of women and girls around the world. She created the role of ambassador-at-large for global women’s issues to ensure women’s rights would be a core priority of U.S. foreign policy. In addition, she spearheaded a U.N. resolution to fight against sexual assault in conflict zones. Along with advancing gender equality abroad, she championed the needs of women and families within the State Department by instituting family-friendly work policies.
Hillary has been fighting for women and girls her entire career—and she’s just getting started which is why a portion of the proceeds from these sweatshirts and totes will go to Hillary's 2016 presidential campaign. She's had our backs for decades and we at #BOSSLADIES absolutely have hers!
