December 10 is International Human Rights Day, an annual commemoration of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To celebrate how far we’ve come – and examine the work we still have ahead of us – we bring you this conversation between our host Melanne Verveer, and two distinguished former United States secretaries of state: Madeleine Albright and Hillary Rodham Clinton. This conversation was recorded in October, on the 25th anniversary of the landmark speech Secretary Clinton gave at the UN Fourth World Conference on Women that took place in Beijing. There, she famously declared “women’s rights are human rights.”
