Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told a Georgetown audience today that “advancing the rights and full participation of women and girls is the great unfinished business of the 21st century.”

The former presidential candidate’s remarks were part of the annual Hillary Rodham Clinton Awards for Advancing Women in Peace and Security ceremony, hosted annually by the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security (GIWPS).
