Former Democratic presidential candidate and “nasty woman” Hillary Clinton gave an empowering speech for women yesterday (March 7th) during the Girls Inc. luncheon, and today especially her words feel pretty darn important.

Since losing the election in November, Hillary Clinton has, understandably, kept a pretty low profile. In fact, spotting Hillz in public has become a bit of an internet game. Clinton has made a few spot public appearances, gifting her friend Katy Perry the UNICEF Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award, and making her feelings about the incredible Women’s March known on social media. She also got ambushed by cheers during a visit to see The Color Purple on Broadway. false

Well, now Hillary Clinton has made another rare public appearance at the Girls Inc. luncheon, where she spoke about the disillusionment that many women are feeling following the election.

After receiving the organization’s Champion of Girls award, Clinton spoke about how she hoped November’s shocking result would inspire more women to run for office, noting that “[t]hey are among the reasons I am so optimistic about our future.”

She then spoke about how she dealt with the election loss.

Continuing, Clinton went on to say that there was still more work to be done in the fight for equality for women.

Watch Hillary Clinton’s full speech below.

We will never not be inspired by women like Hillary Clinton, and we will always believe in equality and for the rights for women. #StillWithHer
