Hillary Clinton’s latest rallying cry for women’s activism was disrupted by a coughing fit, recalling her health struggles on the 2016 campaign trail.
Clinton spoke for about eight minutes on Wednesday for a live stream video to the 2018 MAKERS Conference, urging women to continue fighting to “keep sexism out of politics.”

After complaining about an “all-out assault on core values of democracy,” Clinton promised to soldier on.
“I pledge to continue to speak out, I pledge to never give up,” Clinton vows in the video before coughing.
Reaching for a glass of water, Clinton stares at the camera as she gulps the drink and tells the audience that she will do “everything I can to keep my voice” and “advance the rights and opportunities of women.”
