Clinton to address women's groups


WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is returning to the public stage with her first speaking events since leaving the Obama administration.

Clinton is scheduled to speak Tuesday at the Vital Voices Global Leadership Awards in Washington, D.C., an event honoring women leaders around the world. A Clinton spokesman says it will mark her first public speaking event since leaving the State Department.

On April 5, the former New York senator and first lady will address the Women in the World Summit in New York, an annual event focusing on challenges faced by women and girls around the world. Clinton has addressed both organizations previously.

Clinton is scheduled to address The Economic Club of Grand Rapids, Mich., on June 17, organizers said. The event will be closed to the press.
