Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke on Tuesday night at the U.S. - Islamic World Forum. During her speech that evening, she decried the marginalization of women in Islamic countries. She also urged the countries to provide a stronger role for women to play in politics as well. 
“You cannot have a claim to democracy if half the population is left out,” she said. “All over the world we see living proof that Islam and women’s rights are compatible.”
