Hillary Clinton declared that “the future is female” in a video statement at the feminist Makers Conference on Monday.
In her brief but stilted remarks, Clinton praised last month’s feminist march in Washington, D.C. She also took a thinly veiled jab at Donald Trump in calling on “strong women” to “set an example for every woman and girl out there who’s worried about what the future holds and wonders whether our rights, opportunities and values will endure.”
“Despite all the challenges we face, I remain convinced that yes, the future is female,” Clinton told the audience, which was gathered in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.
“Just look at the amazing energy we saw last month as women organized a march that galvanized millions of people all over our country and across the world,” she added, referring to last month’s Women’s March.
“Remember, you are the heroes and history makers, the glass ceiling breakers of the future. As I’ve said before, I’ll say again, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world,” she concluded.
