It Takes A Village And Other Lessons Children Teach Us

New York, NY: Simon & Schuster, 1996. First Edition. Hardcover. Signed by Hilary Rodham Clinton. Signed by Hillary Rodham Clinton. “[Clinton’s] long experience with children—not only through her personal role as mother, daughter, sister, and wife but also as advocate, legal expert, and public servant—has strengthened her conviction that how children develop and what they need to succeed are inextricably entwined with the society in which they live and how well it sustains and supports its families and individuals” (front flap). From the Arkansas governorship to the Presidency of the United States of America, Hillary Clinton (b. 1947) supported her husband’s political endeavors as a legal advisor and campaign organizer. As First Lady of Arkansas, and then of the U.S., Clinton’s focus has always been on health and education. Her involvement in the law and public policy generally drew criticism even though she has a degree from Yale Law School and was named the first female partner in a prestigious Little Rock law firm, she participated in the House Judiciary Committee that investigated Watergate, and she chaired the New World Foundation all before Bill even ran for President. As the first First Lady to assume the role with equal or superior skill to the man she is supporting, the people were confused and concerned about her involvement outside of the traditional roles of the First Lady. Her professional success and educational excellence were new factors to consider when she became First Lady, but she never let the sexism and judgment affect her ability to improve the lives of people in need. The Office on Violence Against Women in 1995, the Welfare Reform Act in 1996, the Adoption and Safe Families Act in 1997, the State Children’s Health Insurance Program in 1997, and the Foster Care Independence Act in 1999: all are the result of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s involvement as First Lady. Admirable in her poise with the various scandals and controversies thrust upon her and respectable for how she went toe-to-toe with the Republican candidate in the election of 2016, her pursuit of public service and political reform never faltered as she became a Senator and then the Secretary of State before being chosen as the Democratic presidential candidate in 2016. Building a powerful base of supporters has carried her from public service to media celebrity, always spreading the gospel of education, equality, and support for families. Even relevant today, It Takes A Village outlines Clinton’s solutions to the ever-present neglect and abuse of children and the educational crisis in America. Not prioritizing the well-being of children is the first step toward a declining future, a notion often challenged by opponents. At the age of 76, this incredible woman became Professor of Practice at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University.
