Clinton Confirmation Hearing:
Our World is Not Free if Women Are Not Free

"We cannot have a free, prosperous, peaceful, progressive world if women are treated in such a discriminatory and violent way. … I take very seriously the function of the State Department to lead our government, through the Office of Human Trafficking, to do all that we can to end this modern form of slavery. We have sex slavery, we have wage slavery, and it is primarily a slavery of girls and women. … We're going to have a very active women's office, a very active office on trafficking; we're going to be speaking out consistently and strongly against discrimination and oppression of women, and slavery in particular—because I think that is in keeping not only with American values, as we all recognize, but American national security interests as well."
