United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined World Bank President Jim Yong Kim at Gallup headquarters in Washington on Thursday (July 19) for a discussion on gender gap issues throughout the world.

"Everything I have done and everything I have learned in my work over the years has convinced me that improving the rights and the status of women is not simply a matter of human dignity, although it certainly is, it is also essential to our shared prosperity and security," Clinton said.

Clinton told the audience, "we will not be able to move forward on any of our larger strategic goals or improve our security here at home unless we take on the fundamental instability and strife that inequality creates in our world."

The event was held to discuss how additional data might help to improve the lives of women and girls worldwide. The additional evidence is expected to show that investments in opportunities for women and girls benefit a nation's security, economic, and health issues.
