Woman of the Day: Hillary Clinton

Posted by BrookeN at 30th March, 2011

Who was the first woman to nearly win a major political party’s nomination?

Hillary Clinton, the first woman to almost win the Democratic nomination for the presidency, was a former US Senator from New York and First Lady. As a sign of things to come, The National Law Journal named Clinton, a graduate of Wellesley College and Yale Law School, one of the most powerful lawyers in America.

As First Lady, Clinton was able to expand her policy profile and was named to head the Task Force on National Health Reform. Clinton’s presidential candidacy was the longest a woman has ever run in trying to win the presidential nomination. She admits, “Although we weren’t able to shatter that highest, hardest ceiling this time, thanks to you, it’s got about 18 million cracks in it.”
