Hillary Clinton and Madeline Albright founded the NGO Vital Voices in 1999 to nurture women into leadership positions. Their hope was to create an organization that supported women who wished to become political, economic and social leaders around the world.
Vital Voices Global Partnership opened a Northwest branch of their organization on October 4. Sally Field, Academy Award winning actress and board member of Vital Voices was in town to help open the Vital Voices Northwest Council. She and chief executive officer Alyse Nelson explained why they got involved in the organization.
