In a global 'town hall' interview with young people, Clinton talked about her legacy, including the parallels between her tenure as secretary of state and another historical diplomat's, and her future of helping women in politics.

According to CBS News, a young person from London asked Clinton whether she would run for president in 2016, and providing women around the world with a strong role model.

Clinton said that she wanted to see more women compete for the highest positions in countries, adding that she also said that she will do everything she can to make sure women compete at the highest levels.

She said that women need to participate in politics, if governments want to take full advantage of their citizens' potential.

She added that 'although it is better than it was, having been in and around politics for many years now, there is still a double standard' for women in politics.

She added that 'that exists from the trivial, like what you wear, to the incredibly serious like women [who] can't vote'.

She pointed out that in nations like India, women have won the highest elected offices, but in everyday life are still disrespected, as was the young woman brutally raped and murdered there.

According to the report, Clinton said that 'this has been the cause of her life and will continue to be as she leaves the secretary of state's office.
