Since losing the presidential election to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has kept herself under the radar for the most part. She made an appearance at Trump’s inauguration, and there have been whispers that she’s considering running for political office again, but for the most part, she has kept herself out of the public eye… until now.
Hillary released a video for the 2017 MAKERS Conference, and in it, she urges all women to resist Donald Trump, and his administration:
“Just look at the amazing energy we saw last month as women organized a march that galvanized millions of people all over our country and across the world,” she said. “Now more than ever we need to stay focused on this year’s conference: Be bold. We need strong women to step up and speak out. We need you to dare greatly and lead boldly. So please, set an example for every woman and girl out there who’s worried about what the future holds and wonders whether our rights, opportunities and values will endure. And remember, you are the heroes and history makers, the glass ceiling breakers of the future. As I’ve said before, I’ll say again, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world.”
Previously, Hillary praised the marchers in an interview with People magazine. “We watched women and men across this country and the globe stand up, speak out, and peacefully march for those values with one voice,” she said. “It was awe-inspiring. We have to keep up the momentum. I will never stop believing in this country and our collective future. We are still, and will always be, stronger together.”
Yet if we’re stronger together, then why isn’t she fighting for unity? Why is she continuing to encourage the divisiveness that is tearing this country apart?
The MAKERS Conference is meant to be a vehicle for women to tell their stories, and was held at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Other speakers have included Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Oprah Winfrey, and Gloria Steinem — so it’s safe to say that conservative women’s voices likely aren’t welcome.
As for Hillary, it was a lot better when she was out of the public eye. Maybe she should go back to that.
