Myers made history as the first female White House Press Secretary, working for the Clinton Administration.

West Hartford, CT, October 04, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Myers appearance at VOICES couldn’t be more timely: Myers has been outspoken on the subject of healthcare, writing this winter in her huffingtonpost.com blog: “I consider healthcare a basic human right -- and all of us, regardless of our race, gender, income, religion, sexual orientation, or where we live, should have access to it.” Myers is also a political analyst who speaks often about how women possess the kind of critical problem-solving skills that are urgently needed to break down barriers, build understanding, and create the best conditions for peace.
