Secretary Albright

Madam Secretary

Albright believes that being a woman was an advantage, permitting her to be both "humane" and "hard", as well as both charming and firm, and allowing her to switch signals. "I wish there were more women though," she admits, having been instrumental in establishing links between herself and the six other female United Nations representatives (despite there being 185 countries represented) when she worked there. Together they worked to ensure the appointment of two female judges to the UN War Crime Tribunal and to have rape declared as a 'weapon of war'. "I think there is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women".

I think of this quote a lot when referring to Sarah Palin, and our obligation as women to be respectful of her views....Trisha
