Former Australian prime minister Julia Gillard has endorsed US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the latest campaign video.
The video features policy and diplomatic heavyweights across the world including President Obama, former secretary of state Madeleine Albright, former CIA director turned defence secretary Leon Panetta and a retired Navy SEAL Lt. Eric Gardiner.
“Hillary Clinton understood in her heart how important it was for girls to get an opportunity but she also understood in her head that if we want to build peaceful, economically prosperous nations, then we have to educate girls,” Gillard said in the video.
“She was determined to see that women take their places as economic partners in the community and take their places as political leaders in their community.”
Clinton is the favourite to win the Democratic Party’s nomination for presidency.
