In this economic growth keynote, Hillary Clinton not only strives to ensure economic equality for women, but sets a broader goal of finding ways to grow economies while ensuring shared prosperity for all nations and all people. However, the keynote quickly pivots to reveal a key strategy in achieving this goal, and that is to “unlock a vital source of growth that can power our economy in the decades to come.” This source she speaks of is women.
Clinton underlines the need to break the barriers women face in the workforce. She points at the strained economic models that plague much of the world and calls on leaders to increase women’s participation in the economy. She asserts that this kind of action will create a significant economic impact.
