NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign emphasized her experience and competence. Her 2016 campaign pitch could be simpler: She would be the first female president.

As Clinton considers another White House bid, she is pushing themes of female empowerment and the role of women in the nation’s economy and politics.

Mrs. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton , put a spotlight on the role of women this week at their annual Clinton Global Initiative.

The ex-president spoke to Chilean President Michelle Bachelet . Panels featured General Motors CEO Mary Barra and IBM CEO Ginni Rometty , the first female heads at their companies.
