A panel will join us to talk about foreign service and talk about the work done around the world by embassies and more.</p> Mon, 17 Sep 2012 04:00:00 +0000 Charlotte Talks 5022 at http://wfae.org Embassies, Ambassadors and Foreign Service Madeleine Albright (Rebroadcast) http://wfae.org/post/madeleine-albright-rebroadcast <P>Madeleine Albright has always been a trailblazer. In 1997 she became the nation's first female Secretary of State, serving under President Bill Clinton. On that day Madam Albright became the highest ranking woman in the history of the U.S. government. But Dr. Albright was far more than a symbol of female empowerment. She guided U.S. foreign relations with a firm and steady hand often taking on dictators and despots. Despite her tough style, one of the Secretary's tools of diplomacy was uniquely feminine.
