A Robert Siegel Interview with Madeleine Albright: ‘Fascism Is Not an Ideology. It’s a Process for Gaining Power’
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright sits down for an in-depth interview with Robert Siegel, former host of NPR’s All Things Considered. She talks about her granddaughter asking, “what’s the big deal about Grandma Maddie being Secretary of State” and how the world is different today for woman in the workforce compared to when she graduated college. She also discusses the genesis of her famous pin collection; the definition of fascism; the changing nature of the Middle East; what it was like to find out late in life that her grandparents were Jewish and murdered in the Holocaust; and why retirement is a four-letter word. Secretary Albright is the 2020 recipient of “The Moment Women and Power Award.”
“This latest has been my fourth cancer bout,” Ginsburg said. “And I found each time that when I’m active, I feel much better than if I’m just lying about and feeling sorry for myself.”
