In 1995, Ms. Margolies led the United States Delegation to the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women. At the conference, 189 countries signed a Platform for Action that pledged to further the rights of women around the world. Inspired by these commitments, Ms. Margolies founded WCI with the help of Fredrica S. Friedman to empower women to achieve these rights.

Congresswoman Mezvinsky Litigation | Salaman Grayson, P.C. |, 30 Sept 2002 [cached]
The "Friends of Bill" had both served in Congress, and Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, a magnetic former TV reporter, was gearing up for a 2000 Senate bid.
Margolies-Mezvinsky, 60, has kept a low profile since the couple's separate bankruptcy filings in 2000 and her husband's March 2001 indictment. She was noticeably absent Friday when he pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 fraud-related counts.
Margolies-Mezvinsky wasn't charged and has said she left the family finances to her husband. She wasn't home and couldn't be reached for comment, her husband said Saturday.
"This has not broken Marjorie, nor do I believe it's broken Ed," said her lawyer, Zachary L. Grayson.
That 1993 vote endeared her to the Clintons, who would invite the couple to their Renaissance Weekends in Hilton Head, S.C., but it also cost Margolies-Mezvinsky her seat in largely Republican Montgomery County.
She remained in politics, heading the U.S. delegation to the Beijing Women's Conference and unsuccessfully running for lieutenant governor.
While Mezvinsky blamed his woes in part on the costly campaigns and tuition bills - the University of Pennsylvania, where Margolies-Mezvinsky now teaches, once sued over a child's tuition - prosecutors say those were small potatoes.
Arkoosh had $553,931, Margolies ..., 7 May 2014 [cached]
Arkoosh had $553,931, Margolies had $507 and Boyle had $320,052.
Marjorie Margolies, 71, the former 13th District congresswoman, has lived in Plymouth since February and had lived in Wynnewood for the previous six years. She is the president of Womens Campaign International, a nonprofit that has an annual budget ranging from less than $1 million to $3 million per year, depending on grant awards.
Margolies is an adjunct professor at the University of Pennsylvania teaching a media and politics course.
I dont want any money taken from public education, Margolies said. I support universal Pre-K.
Womens issues are the third campaign issue that Margolies is passionate about, she said.
I was just at a conference at New York. What I say is, If you are not at the table you are on the menu, she said.
On a recent campaign day, Margolies made telephone calls to raise campaign funds and organizing several future fundraisers, she said.
When offered a chance to respond to verbal attacks from Leach and Arkoosh at an evening campaign forum at the Portuguese Club in Philadelphia, Margolies declined.
The former president is being featured ... [cached]
The former president is being featured in an ad for Marjorie Margolies, who is both Chelsea Clinton's mother-in-law and Boyle's opponent in the Democratic U.S. House primary here in Pennsylvania's 13 Congressional District.
On Thursday night, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton keynoted a fundraiser for Margolies in New York City -- an event that the candidate herself skipped in order to attend a spring dinner for the Montgomery County Democratic Party.
With Tuesday's primary approaching rapidly and after having faced criticism for running a comparatively lackadaisical campaign, Margolies could not spare an evening outside of the district.
She also figured that there was no reason to pretend that members of the well-heeled Manhattan donor set were turning out to see anyone other than Hillary Clinton.
"In speaking to [the Clintons], it was very clear that 'we'll handle this,'" Margolies said of the event.
Margolies has spent the ensuing years as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania and a women's rights activist, in which she has traveled to some of the world's most desolate spots. It is in that capacity that Margolies enjoys yet another commonality with Hillary Clinton, whose solo appearance at Thursday night's fundraiser marked the former secretary of state first direct foray into the 2014 midterms.
Despite this late effort, observers of Pennsylvania politics have wondered whether Bill and Hillary Clinton were hesitant to do more for Margolies.
Margolies has suffered particularly strong criticism.
Earlier this week, state Sen. Daylin Leach -- another Democratic contender in the 13th District -- filed his second complaint with the FEC, alleging that Margolies had used funds allocated for the general election in her primary campaign -- allegations that the Margolies campaign denies.
Margolies is quick to point out that she has the endorsements of five of Philadelphia's ward leaders, representing 40 percent of the city's registered Democratic voters.
As the campaign has drawn to a close, Margolies, Leach and Val Arkoosh -- an anesthesiologist and the fourth Democratic candidate in the race -- have all directed the brunt of their attacks against Boyle, challenging his commitment to abortion rights.
Margolies answered with a bemused chuckle.
Despite the district's strong affinity for the Clintons, Margolies said that deciding the extent to which her campaign would seek to employ them on the stump was a "no-win situation."
Quickly moving to dismiss any implications that may have been perceived from that characterization, Margolies added that the Clintons "couldn't have been nicer" in each agreeing to host one fundraising event for her.
"They did exactly what we asked them to do," she said.
