Hillary, 74 and Chelsea, 42, were honored at the event for sharing the stories of the courageous women, who have inspired them in their book ‘The Book of Gusty Women‘ and also on the eight-part Apple TV+ documentary series ‘Gutsy‘, produced by them.

Hillary criticised Iranian government for oppressing the freedom of women during her speech.
“I could not stand up here tonight without also recognizing the brave women in Iran who are standing up for their rights, their freedom against a horrific regime who stays in power in large measure because they oppress women,”
“And I could not stand here without thinking about the women in Afghanistan who are being deprived of education, or the women on the front lines in Ukraine who are trying to defend their country against the barbarity of Putin’s invasion.”
Chelsea, wearing a crimson jumpsuit spoke about her experience of raising children in America in the era of Roe v. Wade’s reversal, according to Variety
“I am full of palpitating rage as I look at my daughter and realize that she could have fewer rights than I had growing up in this country,”
“And I look at my sons and realize that they could, too, because while we’ve talked a lot about abortion tonight, it’s also the right to contraception. It’s the right to equal marriage. It’s the right to privacy. Truly, everything that has enabled all of us to lead our lives is under threat. And while that is acutely and urgently true for women, it is not exclusively true for women.”
