Hillary Clinton Says ‘Future Is Female’ in First Public Remarks Since Trump’s Inauguration (Video)

“Never doubt that you are valuable and powerful, and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world,” former presidential candidate tells women

Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she “remains convinced that the future is female,” in an uplifting message to women released Tuesday.

“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,” Clinton said in her first video statement since President Trump’s inauguration.

Clinton recorded the message at the Makers conference, which focuses on women’s issues and is being held this week in California. Last year, Clinton was widely expected to become the first female president until Trump shocked the world on Election Day. She has handled the loss graciously, even attending Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20.

“So, please, set an example for every women and girl out there who is worried about what the future holds and wonders whether our rights, opportunities and values will endure,” Clinton continued. “And remember, you are the heroes, the history makers, the glass ceiling breakers of the future.”

The former Secretary of State concluded her message: “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.”
