Text from Harpo, Inc. video of Secretary Clinton for

SECRETARY CLINTON: Hello to everyone at I am so excited that Oprah and all of those who watch her and love her are going to be firmly behind the idea that our country can do more to help those women and girls who hold up half the sky. There are so many ways that you can be involved. There are resources right here at that can give you the tools you need to help a child go to school, to help a young woman get the healthcare she needs.

I am inspired every day by the women I meet around the world who are part of a change that must happen, so that girls and women have the rights and the voice that they deserve to have. So thank you. Thank you for being part of this effort. And I look forward to working with you in the months and years to come.
