From Karen Murphy in the Examiner:
A few months ago Hillary named Melanne Verveer as the one person – the most qualified and ready to represent our nation to the world as our Ambassador at Large for Global Women’s Issues. This is the first time in our nation’s history that a position like this has been created, and with Hillary at her back I have every faith that Melanne will have the resources and support she needs to carry out her duties and represent our nation to the world on behalf of women and girls. Her work with Vital Voices – an organization that identifies, trains and mentors emerging women leaders all over the world – has given her the experience and the contacts to continue to speak out on behalf of women’s rights. And now she’s taking it to a much higher level, working side by side with Hillary.
