Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is back in the public eye for the first time since leaving the State Department in early February, stoking speculation about her political future.
Clinton was the headline speaker at a summit on "Women in the World" in New York Friday.
The summit was sponsored by Newsweek and the Daily Beast.
While she gave no indication about whether she'll run for president in 2016, there's plenty of interest in her plans.
"If America is going to lead the way we expect ourselves to lead, we need to empower women here at home to participate fully in our economy and our society," Clinton said.
On Thursday, Simon & Schuster announced that it will publish Hillary Clinton's memoir in 2014.
In addition, the Ready for Hillary PAC seems to be ramping up its work.
A prominent Clinton backer made a pitch to supporters this week, asking them to help build the organization.
