SEPTEMBER 5, 1995
Distinguished delegates and guests,
I would like to thank the Secretary General of the United Nations for inviting me to be part of the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women. This is truly a celebration -- a celebration of the contributions women make in every aspect of life: in the home, on the job, in their communities, as mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, learners, workers, citizens and leaders.
The human rights are women’s rights speech:
“If there is one message that echoes forth from this conference, it is that human rights are women’s rights…. And women’s rights are human rights.”
