The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Wash­ing­ton: Demo­cratic fron­trun­ner Hil­lary Clin­ton has said that if elected to the White House hal­fofherCabi­net­would­com­prise women. “I am go­ing to have a Cabi­net that looks like Amer­ica, and 50% of Amer­ica is women, right? ” Clin­ton said dur­ing a MSNBC town hall on Mon­day night.

“I’ve de­voted a lot of my pub­lic life to ad­vo­cat­ing for women’s rights be­ing hu­man rights, and mak­ing the case that we have to do every­thing we can, through laws, reg­u­la­tions, cul­ture, to change the still-ex­ist­ing stereo­types that hold women back,” Clin­ton said at the town hall.

“I think it’s also re­ally im­por­tant to recog­nise that we have made progress but we are still a long way from where we need to be. I know that if you look at pay, for ex­am­ple, equal pay is still a prob­lem, and it’s a prob­lem that gets worse as you get older,” she said.
