Madeleine Albright

Madeleine Albright

The first woman in the post of Secretary of State (1997-2001).
One of the things that was really an issue was I did not want to just be a woman secretary of state. I wanted to be a secretary of a state who was a woman, but not just chosen for that particular reason.More Madeleine Albright quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Why, since man and woman were created for each other, had He made their desires so dissimilar? Why should one class of women be able to dwell in luxurious seclusion from the trials of life, while another class performed their loathsome tasks? Surely His wisdom had not decreed that one set of women should live in degradation and in the end should perish that others might live in security, preserve their frappeed chastity, and in the end be saved.More Madeleine Albright quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The world would be entirely different if it were run by women. I think it is true that we are more seeking consensus and don't have such big egos and have a variety of different ways of trying to get along. But anybody who says that the world would be better has forgotten high school. It depends on who the women are.More Madeleine Albright quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We will not be intimidated or pushed off the world stage by people who do not like what we stand for, and that is, freedom, democracy and the fight against disease, poverty and terrorism.More Madeleine Albright quotes [07/13/2011 03:07:08]
We must be authors of the history of our age.More Madeleine Albright quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
