“It really is so important that we send a clear, unmistakable message to our girls and young women: You are valuable. Your voice counts,” Clinton said during the conversation with Agnes Scott President Elizabeth Kiss. “You have the power to shape your own future. You should do everything you can to pursue your dreams.”
