I was at the Women's Conference in Beijing in 1995 when Hillary Clinton spoke those oft quoted words "women's rights are human rights; human rights are women's rights." From a federal initiative to assist women worldwide, Vital Voices, in 15 years, has become a well known and highly respected NGO with a strong presence in 144 countries. I have participated in Vital Voices sponsored breakfast briefings, panel discussions, the Annual Galas, and most recently a reception honoring the new President of Malawi, HE Joyce Banda, who has worked diligently to elevate women from poverty and remedy inequities. I took part in their regional program in Ukraine in 2007 and in late February of this year i was privileged to be a Global Ambassador at the Haiti National Women's Platform Conference in Petonville, Haiti. The Platform was presented to President Martelly and significant successes have resulted. Through Vital Voices, vital women's voices are being heard and changes made. Connie Morella
