Former Secretary of State and 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will speak Friday on "the important role that women can play in worldwide politics and peace building efforts" at a Georgetown University awards ceremony. She also had a message for the Trump administration, which is pushing for steep cuts in funding for American diplomacy and foreign aid programs around the world.

She also pointed out that more than 120 retired USA generals and admirals recently signed a letter to Trump, urging him not to slash spending on diplomacy and foreign aid. She also challenged several of the conventions the Trump administration- particularly counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway- have been promoting."Women are not inherently more peaceful than men", asserted Clinton, who gained a hawkish reputation during her time as a leading diplomat. The investigation involves misconduct by Ambassador and security agents attached to then-secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.

The former secretary of state, who has recently begun to engage more directly in political fights, said the proposed cuts - which include steep reductions to foreign aid - would be a "grave mistake".

The former first lady, NY senator and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee addressed an awards ceremony at Georgetown University and focused on advancing the rights of women and girls. "Global progress depends on the progress of women". Walking in, Clinton was showered with chants of "Hillary, Hillary".

Clinton was at the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security on Friday to bestow an award named in her honour to Colombian leaders who helped bring an end to war in that country and elevate the role of women in the peace process.

Grassley says that it may take years to root out all of the Clinton-era problems in the State Department, but intends to try to do it anyway. Chuck Grassley, Clinton was allowed to view highly classified documents well after she left the State Department, all the way until she launched her fledgling Presidential campaign in 2015.

She said the "great unfinished business of the 21st century" was guaranteeing equal rights for women and girls. "It is not a partisan issue, it is a human issue". Their work illustrated a point Clinton stressed - that women are critical to peace negotiations.

And Clinton was quick to elevate the issue when she came to Foggy Bottom, even establishing a new high-ranking State Department position, ambassador-at-large for women's issues.

"Thank you. Wow, let's do that again", Clinton joked.
