Clintons Mark Anniversary of Women's Suffrage, Hillary Clinton Heads to Beijing

While celebrating the 75th anniversary of the nineteenth amendment in Wyoming, the Clintons reiterated the importance of the United Nations Fourth World Conference on women. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday accepted an invitation to attend the conference, commenting that her trip to Beijing will be "about giving a voice to women," as the U.S. delegation "will try to focus attention on the challenges and burdens women face trying to improve their lives." President Clinton also remarked that the conference will be "true-blue to families." Womens organizations across the United States supported the decision to attend.
