Madeleine Albright was named the first female Secretary of State in 1997, and became the highest ranking woman in the history of the US government. This exhibition features more than 200 pins which she famously used to make poignant diplomatic statements. Albright used jewelry as a form of communication after Saddam Hussein’s press referred to her as an “unparalleled serpent.” She responded by aptly wearing a golden snake brooch to her next meeting with Iraqi officials.
