"Madeleine Albright, Trailblazing Secretary of State, Dies"

Read the TIME Magazine magazine obituary for Madeleine Albright, featuring remarks from Our Secure Future’s Jolynn Shoemaker on her impact on women’s leadership.

“From the perspective of women’s leadership, it was obviously a huge shift in terms of showing that a woman could be a successful Secretary of State, and I think the optics of that were not lost on an entire generation or more of women.”

“She’s had a very significant imprint on how we think about the world and how we think about U.S. contributions and influence in the world,” says Jolynn Shoemaker, a professor of national security and a fellow at Our Secure Future, where she focuses on women’s leadership in foreign policy.
