She's the former Secretary of State, chair of the global strategy firm the Albright Stonebridge Group, a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and a mother of three.
Madeleine Albright spoke with Arianna Huffington at the Ideas Festival in Aspen Friday, and we can think of no pair more qualified to answer the question: Can women have it all?
Albright talked about being "the only woman in the room" during much of her political career and said the key to women's professional success is often the support of other women. She observed a changing workplace with a much stronger feminine foothold, and said it's more important than ever for girls to be kind to each other.
"The most famous thing I ever said was 'There's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other.'"
Albright also talks Syria, Iraq and the meaning behind her brooches in the full video above.
