“Women Have to Interrupt”

Women’s History Month is an opportunity to reflect on the landmark achievements of women everywhere. This week, CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash talks with Madeleine Albright, the first female US Secretary of State. Secretary Albright shares stories from being the only woman in the room, putting women’s rights at the heart of US foreign policy, her early life escaping Nazis in Europe, and her thoughts on the January 6 insurrection.

Secretary of State from 1997 to 2001

Madeleine Jana Korbel Albright is an American politician and diplomat who served as the first-ever female United States Secretary of State from 1997 to 2001 under President Bill Clinton. Along with her family, Albright immigrated to the United States in 1948 from Czechoslovakia. 

In 1998, at the NATO summit, Albright articulated what became known as the “three Ds” of NATO, “which is no diminution of NATO, no discrimination and no duplication – because I think that we don’t need any of those three “Ds” to happen”.[74]

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright used the word “cojones” to lambaste Fidel Castro.
