Anusuya's poem and yet another "motivated" book.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, "Words to Break the Silence and Then to Act," 6 September 1995.
Occasion: Speech to the Nongovernmental Organizations' Forum in Huairou, China. The Forum was a part of the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women. The poem "Silence" was written by Anasuya Sengupta. She was a senior at Lady Sri Ram College in New Delhi, India, at the time she sent the poem to Mrs. Clinton. The poem is a must read even if it surrounded by the speech text.
Two powerful lines from the poem--
"Too many women in too many countries
speak the same language of silence."

This author of this poem along with her poem is also mentioned in Hillary Clinton's latest book. No issues about the poem but media is speculating behind the real motivation behind the book.
