"Despite all the challenges we face, I remain convinced that yes, the future is female," Clinton said.
"Just look at the amazing energy we saw last month as women organised a march that galvanised millions of people all over our country and across the world."
'The challenges women face' is an understatement for Hillary Clinton, given the results of the recent US presidential election. But she is the perfect example of a woman who keeps fighting, and shows grace despite failure.
In another statement she urged women to be daring and lead boldly.
"We need strong women to step up and speak out. We need you to dare greatly and lead boldly."
What an amazing event!
