In a speech that roamed from the practicalities of health care to the vision of space exploration at the end of the universe, Mrs Heinz Kerry presented an image of a first lady who will not easily be pigeonholed, either as a liability or an adoring spouse
“My right to speak my mind, to have a voice, to be what some have called opinionated,” she told the delegates, “it is a right I deeply and profoundly cherish. And my only hope is that one day soon, women who have all earned their right to their opinions, instead of being called opinionated we will be called smart and well-informed, just like men.”
“”This evening, I want to acknowledge and honour the women of this world whose wise voices for much too long have been excluded and discounted,” she said. “It is time for the world to hear women’s voices in full and at last.”
