UN chief: Hillary Clinton is a champion for women
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is calling former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton a "champion of women's rights and girl's rights" and says she will play an important role in next year's 20th anniversary celebration of the UN women's conference in Beijing.


The UN chief recalled Clinton's "critical role" at the 1995 Beijing conference, where she galvanized the world's women with her demand for equality. (AP)
