Hillary Clinton laments 'double standards' for women in politics

Hillary Clinton

Clinton said upliftment of women and speaking for their rights has been the cause of her life and will continue to be as she leaves the office of the Secretary of State.

"The young woman who essentially was raped and then died of her terrible injuries -- who knows what she could have contributed to India's future? When you put barriers in the way of half the population, you in effect are putting brakes on your own development as a nation. And there's more than adequate research to prove this," she said.

Pointing to the Indian journalist Barkha Dutt who was anchoring the show from India, she said: "Just in a personal, everyday life example, I'm looking at one of the leading journalists in the world, certainly one of the leading journalists in India, Barkha. She brings to her job her experiences that are then infusing the coverage that she provides".
