During the "virtual premiere" of the documentary, which was hosted by the wo-time Oscar winner, Hillary Swank, the former U.S secretary of state surprised guests with a message of encouragement for women around the world.

The documentary, titled "Woman," was produced by Anastasia Mikova and Yann Arthus-Bertrand and followed inspiring women around the world, who conquered societal norms in their careers and lived to influence their societies positively.

The film features more than 2000 women across 50 countries — discussing topics such as motherhood, education, marriage, and sexuality. The premiere's host, Swank, explained her shock at the prevalence of violence and repression perpetrated against women around the world.

She stated: "'Woman' is an incredibly vital and important documentary that alerts and informs us all about the urgent and necessary challenge we have in helping women worldwide." She added that:

"WOMAN is mesmerizing, heartbreaking and hopeful."

The actress emphasized that the film was also about the strength of women, which is what convinced her to come on-board.

Earlier this year, Swank's co-host — and Cinemoi Network president — Daphna Ziman, announced that a group of women — including Swank, Chaka Khan, and Macy Gray — had pledged to help raise $1 million to support the Red Cross in their efforts to help COVID-19 frontline health workers.

Hillary also expressed concerns that the current U.S administration might make it more difficult for women to succeed.

Clinton is still shattering "glass ceilings" for women and was appointed the first female chancellor of Queen's University Belfast in Northern Ireland, at the end of 2019. The 72-year-old will serve five years in the position, becoming only the 11th person named to the role.

Despite losing the 2016 presidential elections, Clinton insists she has no regrets and believes the dream of having a woman as president of the U.S is closer than ever thanks to her efforts.

The former Secretary of State also expressed concerns that the current U.S administration might make it more difficult for women to succeed.military.
