First Lady

As First Lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton has worked to improve the lives of people here and around the world. A longtime advocate for children, Mrs. Clinton has encouraged policies that will help parents balance work and family, strengthen America’s public schools, and provide greater opportunities to children and youth of all backgrounds, particularly those who are most vulnerable. She has sought to expand access to quality health care for all Americans, and to increase the economic security of working families. She has also worked to build support for the arts and arts education, and has led an effort to preserve America’s important historical and cultural treasures.

To advance America’s foreign policy objectives, Mrs. Clinton has visited countries around the world at the request of the Secretary of State and the President. In her travels representing the United States, she has spoken out on human rights, democracy, and religious tolerance. Her visits have drawn public attention to successful projects that can be replicated-- from micro-credit programs that have given women and their families economic opportunities to efforts to build thriving civil societies in emerging democracies.
