In the first of four primetime specials that examine some of the country's defining moments, noted broadcaster Tavis Smiley accompanies Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on a diplomatic mission abroad, to meetings on Capitol Hill and within the State Department itself, to give the American public a candid and incisive view of the inner workings of U.S. diplomacy and international relations.
Although Hillary Clinton is the third woman to serve as Secretary of State, she is the first to create an ambassador-level position for the Office of Global Women's Issues and has made women's issues central to her foreign policy agenda. Watch a web-exclusive video that explains why Clinton is a champion of women's rights.
