Hillary Rodham's 1969 commencement address at Wellesley College did not stand out because of what she said.
It stood out because of how she said it, and because she said it at all. This is a story not about words, but about context.
Before 1969, Wellesley had never had a student speaker at commencement. Administrators spoke and special guests spoke, but students at this women's college didn't have a voice on graduation day.
