Hillary Clinton Urges Women Not to Take Any Shit

After being introduced by Meryl Streep, the woman who will probably play her in a biopic, Hillary Clinton closed the third annual Women in the World summit at the Lincoln Center in New York on Saturday with a call for women in the United States to set an example for women across the world in asserting their right to make their own choices, a right, she explain, which forms the cornerstone of any democracy.

Clinton said that male extremists, both abroad and, gasp, here, are always looking for ways to control women, adding that this fixation remains "a mystery" to her She told the audience that they had to "stand up for women's rights and reject efforts to marginalize" any individual woman, efforts that certain extremists in the U.S., a supposed vanguard of democratic lip service, are trying to turn into a recreational sport.
