Madeleine Albright on politics and diplomacy

In this special episode from the National Democratic Institute’s Changing the Face of Politics podcast, Julia interviews Secretary Madeline Albright, Former Secretary of State to the United States and Chairman of the National Democratic Institute Board of Directors.


They discuss Madeleine’s experience as a leader in politics and diplomacy, and cover everything from her gender equality advocacy, what it was like to forge the path as the first female Secretary of State, great life regrets, motherhood, and of course her famous quote, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”


“Some people that feel inadequate press that inadequacy on other women. So, one can blame men for everything, but I do think that we also bear some responsibility in seeking to do more than is evident at the time.” Madeleine Albright.
