Friday, September 25, New York - Before finishing visit in New York, President of the Republic of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaitė attended a meeting of women world leaders yesterday. The meeting brought together not only women presidents but also women prime ministers and foreign affairs ministers from different states of the world. For the Lithuanian President, this was the first meeting of this kind, organised and hosted by the U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.

"I was invited to participate actively in the work of women world leaders initiative not only to defend women's rights but also to promote their active participation in policymaking by shaping global opinions on a wide range of issues," Dalia Grybauskaitė says.

This forum of women world leaders working to protect women's rights was founded a decade ago by Madeleine Albright, the first women to become the U.S. Secretary of State.
