Summary
In 2001, when Madeleine Albright was leaving office as America's first female secretary of state, interviewers asked her how she wished to be remembered. 'I don't want to be remembered, ' she answered. 'I am still here and have much more I intend to do. As difficult as it might seem, I want every stage of my life to be more exciting than the last.' In that time of transition, the former Secretary considered the possibilities: she could write, teach, travel, give speeches, start a business, fight for democracy, help to empower women, campaign for favored political candidates, spend more time with her grandchildren. Instead of choosing one or two, she decided to do it all. For nearly twenty years, Albright has been in constant motion, navigating half a dozen professions, clashing with presidents and prime ministers, learning every day. Since leaving the State Department, she has blazed her own trail, and given voice to millions who yearn for respect, regardless of gender, or background.
