What she did for women in Beijing, she's now doing for gay rights in Geneva. A number of people in the audience represented countries that are persecuting gays and lesbians.
One commenter on the Huffington Post noted, "What is particularly significant about this speech is that only one year ago this discussion was banned in the UN... A small minority of African delegates was manipulatively using their committee appointments to censor certain discussions and preventing the mention of LGBT rights. This is actually a world-changing and groundbreaking speech."
I love it when politicians stop talking politics and instead take stands for human rights.
