The conversation was moderated by American journalist Mika Brzezinski, and the lecture was sponsored by the National democratic Institute for international Affairs (organization created by the US government).

Albright, in turn, said that the empowerment of women worldwide is the emergence of “women can change the political situation, running to the government positions”. In her opinion, they should be part of the decision-making mechanism.
Women make a great contribution, they are caring by nature, they are strong, intelligent. Why do so many women still not aware of their own importance? Rape, lack of punishment for rape, domestic violence… There are many areas where we still ask: “Please, stop to hurt us” and “Please, bring him to justice, if he will hurt me”,
