    The former secretary of state is scheduled to speak on Tuesday afternoon at Bryn Mawr College.

    Clinton helped launch the initiative in 2011. It's designed to offer guidance and inspiration to female leaders from countries undergoing political transitions or emerging from conflicts.

    Since stepping down as head of the State Department early this year, Clinton has been giving private speeches, writing a book and working with her family's global foundation.

    Supporters are encouraging her to run for president in 2016.

    The Former First Lady will be back in the area in the fall when she receives the 2013 Liberty Medal, an award her husband, former President Bill Clinton, has also received.
