Hillary Rodham Clinton: 'If You Teach A Woman to Fish . . .'

Quote of the Day

“You all know the studies that have shown when a woman receives even just one year of schooling, her children are less likely to die in infancy or suffer from illness or hunger, and more likely to go to school themselves. . . Well, you know the proverb, 'Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day, but teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime'? Well, if you teach a woman to fish, she’ll feed the whole village.”
