more talk but still no programs and her time is almost over

Secretary of State Hillary Clintonannounced today a commitment from 21 members of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation to boost economic growth and productivity by removing barriers to women.

Clinton, in a speech, laid out an economic case for APEC members to end such discriminatory practices as taxing women, limiting their ability to own property or to get access to capital, markets, jobs, training and positions of leadership.

A Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) report, cited by Clinton, found that increasing women’s participation in the economy could lead to a 14 percent rise in per capita income by 2020 in APEC countries including China, Russia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Korea.

“When everyone has a chance to participate in the economic life of nations, we can all be richer, because more of us would be contributing to the global GDP,” Clinton told an audience at an APEC meeting on women and the economy in San Francisco.

The San Francisco Declaration adopted today commits APEC’s members to pursue a “generation-long journey,” Clinton said.  In doing so, they’ll create a fundamental economic shift that leaves member countries more competitive and prosperous, she said.

Clinton’s announcement married two of her strongest interests. She has focused on women and children since early in her professional life, she has sought to leverage the State Department’s power to boost economic growth.


Clinton cited today a study by consultants McKinsey & Co. that found that approximately one-quarter of U.S. gross domestic product is attributable to productivity gains tied to the rise of women in the U.S. workplace over the last 40 years, from holding 37 percent of all jobs, to 48 percent.
...
APEC has discussed the issue of women’s economic participation before and has made uneven progress toward change, Clinton said. In the U.S. and every APEC economy, women are“still sidelined.”

Only 11 of the CEOs of Fortune Global 500 companies are women, Clinton said.
Clinton has already launched women’s economic projects inAfrica. The African Growth Opportunity Act created an initiative to help African women entrepreneurs build export capacity and take advantage of trade opportunities.

And she has launched TechWomen, a technology program in which women from around the world have been mentored by women in the Silicon Valley. At the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Clinton has also advanced an effort to collect data on women’s education, entrepreneurship, and employment.

Speaking to the audience of government officials and private companies from APEC countries, Clinton urged data collection that’s disaggregated by gender so the group has hard statistics to ensure countries are making progress and to detail the impact of women’s participation.


More.............http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-09-16/clinton-calls-women-key-to-fueling-asian-u-s-economic-growth.html

GC Notes: It was a good speech.  I enjoyed it.  Clinton notes that APEC will pass a resolution to liberate women, ah.... remove the barriers.   Mama thinks these leaders will give the good girls what they ask for in their resolution because they are committed and it is so reasonable.  SHE PROVED IT!   Clinton does not realize that the sisters, starting with her, have to do it for them self or it will not happen.  So as good lawyers do, Clinton gathers the evidence,  she pleads her case, resolutions are passed and she moves on to the next meeting and makes another speech.  Global women look at her with bright hope, sure she is helping them.  Their slave masters wait for her term to run out.

Clinton acts as though there have not been a thousand resolutions.  I looked to Clinton to implement programs at State; to be the one that designed programs for women and implemented them, the way Condi Rice did. Even Laura Bush who built hospitals in Afghanistan did more in reality.  Michelle Obama is actually helping get food stores into food deserts, encouraging people to plant gardens, getting nutrition into school lunch programs, educating about obesity.  Michelle is doing  good work in the face of opposition from Big Agri business.   But they are not blond democrats so their work is derided by "feminists".  

Feminists are starting hesitantly to criticise Obama but Hillary is sacred ground and that goddess worship is a betrayal of women.   Women don't have to just hate her the way Laura and Condi and Michelle are hated for nothing more than being in the wrong party but we have to voice a desire for the kind of programs that actually help a majority of women.  We also have to demand that the IVAWA is passed.

Clinton has developed two projects after all this time and just barely.  I do not know much about either except that Clinton was working with the World Bank in Africa and Papua New Guinea.  No measurable results and she is quiting in 12 months.  Her husband is working in Africa so she is probably linking into his work in some way.   Her other program, Tech Woman, is interesting.

Yes that was a good speech, along with obvious stats that are worth repeating.  Like Obama, Clinton thinks speeches are enough.  Leadership - she puts her faith in leadership.  All those years as a politician -- somehow the goal as articulated in excellent speeches never had to be actually accomplished by the speaker.  No !   Our politician's code.  Leaders lead, not do.  Make them love you, and they will defend you against other politicians.  They will love you if you give them hope - in inspiring speeches that show them you are on their side.

But see here in Response to a Critic, Chesler's list of global realities for women and think about what programs are needed with foreign aid money to help women.


Hospitals and training for midwives, schools for girls, women's centers, birth control education, ending genital mutilation, stoning, barbaric rape laws, gender apartheid, child brides, trafficking, building DV shelters and economic development projects to market women's commodities, the media and technology projects; Jay Leno's wife and the women who brought Afghan girls to study in the US.   

Hillary, you have taken too long to do too little.  You should have built on what Condi did, not gutted it.  That was arrogant and hurt women in Afghanistan.  Somehow I still want to support you.  I still want to hope.  But I will not be silent to gain the admiration of my peer group.  You should do more.

To Be Of Use
by Marge Piercy

The people I love the best
jump into work head first
without dallying in the shallows
and swim off with sure strokes almost out of sight.
They seem to become natives of that element,
the black sleek heads of seals
bouncing like half-submerged balls.

 I love people who harness themselves, an ox to a heavy cart,
who pull like water buffalo, with massive patience,
who do what has to be done, again and again.

I want to be with people who submerge
in the task, who go into the fields to harvest
and work in a row and pass the bags along,
who are not parlor generals and field deserters
but move in a common rhythm
when the food must come in or the fire be put out.

 The work of the world is common as mud.
Botched, it smears the hands, crumbles to dust.
But the thing worth doing well done
has a shape that satisfies, clean and evident.
Greek amphoras for wine or oil,
Hopi vases that held corn, are put in museums
but you know they were made to be used.

 The pitcher cries for water to carry
and a person for work that is real.

I love Hillary. Cut her some slack. Laura and Michelle are wives of presidents. Hillary is Secretary of State and is busting her ass. You can't pit one against the other.

I cut her enough slack -- she does not produce for women. I loved her too and I understand your love. But it is the same love blacks have for Obama. We should wise up. I guess the thing that makes me different from what I call the Hillary groupies is that I worked with everyday women who produced miracles with nothing. The women who now have no names. Miracles with nothing. So when I see a woman with real power produce so little in terms of real change, I am dissapointed. Also, I believe political support should ONLY be given when feminist programs are implemented. Pretty words are just bread and circuses. They are worth something but not much. They are a start. I do not hate her - I still thrill to her speeches and if she ran I would vote for her. But I am disillusioned and realize that she won't do it for us anymore than Obama will.

Do you know why we all love her so much? Like Gloria she represent the archetype of the Good Mother which the daughters all long for so passionately.

But Gloria moved out of poverty as a CIA agent and Hillary is not an organizer. It is better to know so that our expectations and therefore our plans are realistic and actually change the system.

You can advance spiritually through rejecting illusion and seeing the complexity of the whole. It does not mean you will lose any comfort.

I want to say one more thing which is how much in so many ways I do admire Hillary from her sensible pants suits and dress to her speeches.

And I will also say perhaps I do not understand the work she is doing. I hope it will be more, have results, that are more than I see now. I want to believe. I will gladly eat humble pie if I am wrong.

But here is the thing. I believe fiercely we must demand real programs for women and the employment of feminist organizers and the passage of the IVAWA. But I cannot stand criticism of Hillary either.

When I hear criticism of Hillary I cringe and feel anger, mainly because most of it is so sexist and unfair and stupid. Voting for BO over Hillary was incomprehensible to me, especially by any woman. OK a black woman I can understand.

The sexist crap Hillary takes on a daily basis is another reason we all feel so protective of her. It is like the sexism we face every day is made blatant in her life. We identify with that and do not want to hurt her anymore. We want to protect her because we feel identified and as if we are protecting ourself - which we are. An attack on one will be answered by all and all that. Save your sister, save your self. It is all true.

I understand all that. Still we have to keep our eye on the prize and demand programs. It is like the suffragettes. They could not support women's organizations that did not move the ball forward and broke with those groups, even though they loved and respected the women in them.

I SENT THIS EMAIL TO THE STATE DEPT OFFICE ON GLOBAL WOMEN
To:'SFundWomenandGirls@state.gov'
and
'sgwipublic@state.gov'

Re: Clinton programs for women and girls

Under programs here: http://www.state.gov/s/gwi/programs/index.htm

I read this:

“S/GWI supports these efforts by providing high-impact grants to community-based organizations working to meet the critical needs of women and girls around the world. S/GWI is funding 67 programs through public and private funding mechanisms in 40 countries. “

I would like a list emailed to me of the names and addresses of said 67 agencies and a short summary of what they and/or our funding is achieving. I would like to know the amount of the grant each agency received.


Also I read: “The Secretary’s Fund currently supports ten grants in eight different countries.”

I would like the names and addresses of the grantees and the work the funding is supporting. I would like to know the amount of the grant each agency received.

Dare I say this information should be on your website?? It is easy to say you have programs which help women but there needs to be the transparency about those programs and therefore some accountability.


Thank You

I don't get notification of posts anymore, so had to look for your comment, but did find it. I will try to start it tomorrow. I had written in that earlier email that disappeared that I love you because you make me think. I do think Hillary has a full plate as SOS, and she is still pursuing equality for women. She can't be all things to all people. Hope you get a response from your letter. Also, your blog is outstanding. I can't even imagine how long it must take you to post, but I really, really love it.

At Uppity Woman, PMM posted this video but it actually makes my point:

http://vodpod.com/watch/15443696-cgi-2011-closing-plenary-with-summationon-cgi-live-live-streaming-video-powered-by-livestream?pod=

Yes, Heart Swelling Music, master performances, OUR first family, foreign faces glowing with admiration........

Hillary's initiative for women in the State Dept imitates Bill's idea of a Global Foundation --- to fund what? We do not know. Bill's fundraising is criticized for its lack of accountability -- that is, he never reports what all that money accomplished in a form that can be easily understood and scrutinized.

Hillary Clinton's foundation at State is a fund which models Bill's Global Initiative. It is always about following Bill, reinforcing Bill, being a family, working together. She is Bill's partner and she manages the women and girls. Her economic class is about money and foundations so that is what she does as Bill does.

Other women who come from working class people do it them self, get their hands in it, involve feminists from the US, set up connections and watch closely to see if the programs are working for women, changing them when they do not.

Funding groups in other countries may be just what is needed but many times we are just funding CIA fronts. Plus, since Bill's priority is AIDs, I will bet you money that groups funded by Hillary will have more connection to that than to ending violence against women. Without ending the violent reprisals, women cannot struggle for liberation. DV shelters should be a priority as should be ending child marriages,FGM, rape in all the forms, encoutaging education and economic development.

My hope lies with Hillary's project for "women in technology" which pairs global women with women in Silicone Valley. That can have important results. First, it will facilitate network building among women. That was the kind of stuff Condi Rice did. The sisterhood across national boundaries. If Hillary could do similar stuff with the other groups she is funding from the State Dept. that would be spectacular. She could do this in her last 12 months. Because friendships in the US may save these women's lives when the thugs come for them. Beyond that, the liberation goal is manifest to the sisters when they visit. Continuing and evolving liberation goals between women of all classes and countries.

So there is still hope -- I am always willing to see the good and it is true what you said, SHE can't be everything to everyone.

The real problem is the US second wave, including me is too old and tired, (and poor) to form a mass movement. And the third wave is brain dead.
