Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the keynote speaker for the National Women’s Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony happening September 24 at the Smith Opera House in Geneva.
Clinton, who served as U.S. secretary of state from 2009 to 2013 under President Obama, a U.S. senator representing New York from 2001 to 2009, and as First Lady of the United States from 1993 to 2001 was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005.
“Secretary Clinton has been a steadfast supporter of the National Women’s Hall of Fame and its work to lift up and celebrate women’s achievements,” said Women’s Hall of Fame Executive Director Jennifer Gabriel. “This region gave life to the Women’s Rights Movement, and we are proud to showcase its rich and vibrant history as the nation comes together to honor nine extraordinary women.”
