NEW YORK – Hillary Rodham Clinton announced here Wednesday that she will lead a “full and clear-eyed” review of the advances made for worldwide women’s equality and the obstacles that remain as the 20th anniversary of the historic Beijing women’s conference draws near.

Clinton, who along with then-U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Madeleine Albright led the U.S. delegation to the U.N. Conference on Women in 1995, said she will spearhead a “Beijing Plus 20” review of women’s issues at her family’s charitable foundation in the run-up to the 2015 anniversary.
