(CNN) - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sought to live up to her "glass ceiling cracker" Twitter profile Friday, announcing a "No Ceilings" project to be run through her family foundation.
"Too many women here and around the world still face ceilings," Clinton said in a keynote speech in Philadelphia to the Pennsylvania Conference for Women.
Those ceilings "make it harder for them to pursue their own God-given potential," said the 2008 presidential contender, former first lady and Democratic Senator from New York.
Formally titled "No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project," the initiative aims to further one of Clinton's core pursuits of empowering women.
According to the Clinton Foundation website, the ceilings project "will work with leading technology partners to create a comprehensive and accessible global review that will bring together and widely distribute the best data on the status of women and girls and their contributions to prosperity and security."
It continues, "Through the No Ceilings project, Secretary Clinton will also outline a 21st century agenda to accelerate full participation for women and girls around the world. The project will convene the private sector, government, civil society, and individuals to accelerate progress toward this agenda."
Friday, Clinton spoke of the ceilings holding back not just women and girls but the economy as a whole. When you remove barriers to women, "the effects ripple across the entire society," she said.
Report: Obama campaign considered replacing Biden with Hillary Clinton
The trappings of the speech full of progressive issues like combating poverty, providing social safety nets and ensuring equality for all, especially women, ring like a pre-presidential speech as speculation continues to flare over a possible return to the campaign trail for Clinton. She has ramped up her speaking engagements recently, including three speeches in as many days last week. It is estimated that Clinton makes as much as $200,000 per speech.
Clinton has refused to say whether or not she will seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, although she has said she'll probably start thinking about it next year.
PS: let us drive these GOP thugs back to Yemen.
You have to admit all those Liberal's think you need a baby sitter all you are too stoopid to take care of yourself. Bill wants to get back in the White House so bad he can taste it. Of course with another Liberal in the White House jobs will continue to disappear. Who knows how bad it will be in 2016. At this time it doesn't look good.
hard to believe she would be a consideration for the highest office of the land....Benghazi is the tip of the iceberg. Her bad news goes back to the Nixon years, where she withheld information from proceedings favorable to Nixon, Whitewater, Troopergate, Rose Law firm...and on and on and on. Why not find someone who has a more favorable history? This woman is dangerous.
Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. "What difference does it make."
Maybe she could fix the health care mess...
May it come crashing down around her.
That's what we need – another President who is thin-skinned. AND who just continue Obama's agenda. No thank you.
Hillary has a train load of baggage and she would be a train wreck if she tried for president.
What difference does it make will have a big impact on her scandal in Libya.
Don't bother Hillary. Obama, Reid and Pelosi have poisoned the waters for Democrats. And all her lies about Benghazi will soon be coming to light. You blew it Hillary when you left those 4 Americans to die after you denied them the security they needed.
Hillary decided to run in 2016 on the day she conceded the nomination to Obama in 2008. She'll announce after the mid-terms. If the Democrats do well, she'll announce shortly after, and if they don't, then she'll announce a bit later, but it's happening.
Hillary will smash glass ceiling in 2016. Tea Partiers and social conservatives will continue their war against women to the detriment of the Republican Party.
Please. Please run. We have got to start rushing back against the Bully Party. Im still waiting for the other foot to fall when we find out that the ACA website was intentionally sabotaged! There is no other explanation.
I would not walk across the street to see nor hear Hillary Clinton speak. $200,000 a throw? What a joke. I guess when you are a millionaire, it doesn't make any difference if you have "enough" money, besides, at this stage in the Clinton's lives, it is just "how you keep score" in your quest for personal fortune and amassing money, and wealth.
Hillary 16 This lady is smart unlike the repo idiots like cruz palin and paul. Those goons will be the end of the repo party.
