Hillary Clinton: The Unfinished Business Of The 21st Century Is Women's Equality

We have to teach every girl that she is valuable powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity to pursue and achieve her own dreams' Clinton said during her speech Watch Hillary Clinton Make Light of Her Election Loss and Offer Inspiring Words For Girls

Since losing to Trump, Clinton has kept a low profile by keeping her speaking appearances to a minimum.

Speaking earlier on March 7 in midtown Manhattan at the Girls Inc. annual NY luncheon hosted by ABC' s Elizabeth Vargas, Clinton expressed optimism about the future while reflecting about her experience of loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 general election, ABC News reports.

She also spoke of the "unfinished business of the 21st century being full equality for women" and the importance of Girls Inc. and its mission to provide girls with counseling, life skills and mentors to transcend gender, economic and social barriers and be healthy and independent.

Dressed in red, the official color for International Women's Day, Clinton told the largely female audience that women's voices have "never been more vital" than right now. "I have had my ups and downs in the last months".

The former secretary of state said she has continued to practice the "discipline of gratitude", saying a "village" of support she's received has taught her that "it's OK to be OK, sometimes. And if you have lived long enough, you have experienced them, haven't you?" "We walked out today for a Day Without a Woman to send a clear message: that we stand with our sisters across the country who have walked out in defense of equal rights for women". There's definitely reason for hope if elementary school girls are not only thinking about empowerment, but want to support one another in it - and already know they have the power to lead. She was on hand to accept the 2017 Champion for Girls Award from the organization.

"I'm going to go to the hair salon and be like gimme the Hillary Clinton blonde plz".

Clinton also talked about practicing gratitude no matter the circumstances and how it provides "the inner strength, even the stubbornness to keep showing up every day, to refuse to quit or give up in the face of any setback".

The former Democratic nominee, the first woman to represent a major political party in a U.S. presidential election, said during a luncheon for the Girls, Inc. women's empowerment organization that she's been doing some "soul-searching" over the past four months - and a lot of sleeping. We've just got to make sure that the world is ready for them'.
