When Cristie Andrews, a graphic designer from Los Angeles, asked Hillary Clinton why she wanted to be president in an interview with Glamour magazine, Clinton’s answer was hardly surprising: children.
“I’ve worked on a lot of issues during my career, and I have a lot of detailed plans for many things I want to accomplish as president,” Clinton wrote to Andrews, “But the one issue that has always mattered the most to me is children. That has been the work of my life. That’s my motivation.”
Clinton’s investment in the lives of children is a focal point of her campaign. She drafted Yale New Haven Hospital’s legal procedures for instances in which adolescent patients show signs of parental abuse. She worked for the Children’s Defense Fund, representing the legal rights of low income, minority, abused children. She later advocated for the 1975 Education for All Handicapped Children Act in Massachusetts, spurring lawmakers to make education a civil right for students with disabilities.
