Hillary Clinton - "I went last week to West Bengal in East India and had two remarkable experiences – meeting the newly elected chief minister, a woman, who on her own started a new political party and built that political party over many years, and just successfully ousted Communist Party that had been in office for 30, 34 years or so, and who is trying now to govern a state with 90 million people in it,". Clinton also mentioned that she met with a group of women in Kolkata mostly Indian and may be some American – who, along with some of the some men were running diffrent organisations to rescue girls from having been trafficked into prostitution line.

"And in particular, the very last line of one of our last presenters that change takes time and love makes the difference," US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton  said. "So when I was introduced to a young girl, probably about 10, who had, with her mother, been rescued from a brothel, who was dressed in her karate outfit and she asked me, 'Do you want to see me do karate'– I said, 'I really do."
