Woman of the Week - Hillary Clinton

My mother and I are going to a luncheon tomorrow sponsored by the National Partnership for Women & Families. Hillary Clinton will be the keynote speaker at the luncheon. I am very excited about hearing her speak in person because she is one of my idols. Clinton is the 67th United States Secretary of State. She graduated from Yale Law School in 1973 and practiced law in her early career. In 1978, Clinton became the first female chair of the Legal Services Corporation. She was listed twice as one of the top 100 most influential lawyers in America. Hillary Clinton was also the first First Lady with a post-graduate degree.

I was thrilled when Hillary ran for the democratic nomination in the 2008 presidential campaign. I can't believe we still haven't had a female president or vice president. Maybe there will be a female president in the next decade. Let's hope! Anyway, I can't wait to see Hillary Clinton tomorrow. My mom and I are going to dress up in our pant suits even though it's supposed to be 95 degrees tomorrow. We have to represent with our pant suits!
