On MSNBC this afternoon, Chelsea Clinton of the Clinton Foundation appeared on Alex Wagner’s show with actress Jada Pinkett Smith to talk about women’s rights in the United States.

Clinton warned women that they were “losing ground” in career fields such as computer science and engineering, even though women were earning the majority of college degrees.

“We know that if we are really going to own our own future, we can’t leave a gender behind, like we all need to be part of that.” Clinton insisted. “So we need to be doing a better job encouraging girls to take math and computer science classes, encouraging women in college to major in those fields and encouraging companies to hire and mentor those  women.”

Clinton graduated in 2001 at Stanford University with an undergraduate degree in History. Clinton also graduated with a master’s degree in international relations from Oxford in 2003 as well as a second masters in 2010 at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.

Clinton is now pursuing a doctorate at Oxford and working for her father’s Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative.
