Madeleine Albright, the first woman to become U.S. Secretary of State and a 2012 recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, will make three stops in Iowa next week in support of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
The Czechoslovakian-born diplomat, known for her uncanny ability to smash glass ceilings into a thousand tiny pieces (not to mention her stellar lapel pins), will stop by Sioux City, Council Bluffs and West Des Moines on Wednesday, Oct. 14.
Albright will focus on gender equality during her trip, discussing Clinton’s efforts to promote women’s economic empowerment both at home and abroad, in addition to championing programs that prevent and respond to gender-based violence. All events are open to the public.
