Hillary Clinton: The Arthur Miller Freedom to Write Lecture

At a time of unprecedented threats to free speech, open discourse,​ and the rights of historically marginalized groups​, Secretary Hillary Clinton will draw on her time as the nation’s top diplomat and her ​career in politics​ to underline the centrality of free speech — broadly defined and vociferously

defended — in sustaining healthy democracies and vibrant societies. Secretary Clinton has shown a life-long commitment to amplifying lesser-heard voices and buttressing safeguards for free expression.

Following the lecture, celebrated Nigerian-born writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Half of a Yellow Sun, Americanah, and We Should All Be Feminists, among others), a champion of unheard stories, and a feminist, will engage Clinton in conversation. This dialogue between two strong advocates for women and girls—one from politics and diplomacy, the other from world literature—promises unique insights into how we might imagine a better future for women and girls around the world.

Named for playwright Arthur Miller, a fierce advocate for free expression and longtime leader of PEN, the annual lecture is a hallmark of the World Voices Festival.
