Hilary Clinton Launches the First Women-Led and Women-Founded Global Politics Institute

For the first time in 50 years, Hillary Clinton is returning to the classroom. No stranger to female empowerment, the former secretary of state (a 1992 and 2008 Woman of the Year) is combining forces with Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) to increase female voices in foreign relations through its new Institute of Global Politics.

In her new role, Clinton will also teach a class called In the Situation Room, which she teaches alongside Dean Keren Yahri-Milo, an award-winning scholar, with a focus on recognizing and responding to global patterns across the economy and democracy.

“We want to address the issues, from climate change to war, that are directly affecting women and girls—which we saw during COVID and we’re still struggling with the after-effects,” Clinton tells Glamour.

“If you’re talking about global economic growth and dealing with inequity, women have to be at the table,” she says. “We want to tackle these everyday issues but on a global stage. From the very beginning, they’re going to be a part of what we look at, work on, and certainly try to raise visibility on.”
