“Despite all the challenges we face, I remain convinced that yes, the future is female,” she said. “Just look at the amazing energy we saw last month as women organized a march that galvanized millions of people all over our country and across the world.”

She added: “And remember, you are the heroes and history-makers, the glass ceiling breakers of the future. As I’ve said before, I’ll say again — never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world.”

The gathering, which will shed a light on issues like violence against women, will host hundreds of innovative leaders. This year, the theme is Be Bold.

“We need strong women to step up and speak out. We need you to dare greatly and lead boldly,” Clinton said. “So please, set an example for every woman and girl out there who’s worried about what the future holds, and wonders whether our rights, our opportunities and our values will endure.”
