Description

At the fifth annual Women in the World Summit, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman spoke with IMF director Christine Lagarde and former secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Both women were introduced by summit founder Tina Brown as "first among women," and greeted with a standing ovation at New York's Lincoln Center. Each is the most popular female politician in her country. Each grew up with brothers and learned how to elbow her way in and operate in a man's world. Each champions women in their public pronouncements and policies, and when Clinton and Lagarde appeared together at a panel moderated by Thomas L. Friedman, together they called for greater political and economic participation by women around the globe. "Women," Clinton said from the stage, "are the world's most untapped resource." Women "are better than men at adjusting, which is a sign of intelligence," Lagarde said. "So we're a threat. Because we can achieve lots and lots of things and more than they can."
