First female Secretary of State Madeleine Albright dies at 84

Madeleine Albright, America’s first female secretary of state, died on Wednesday at the age of 84 from cancer.

Albright was selected by then-President Bill Clinton in 1996, serving for four years during his administration.

“She was surrounded by family and friends. We have lost a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend,” a statement from her family said.

“As secretary of state, Albright was the highest-ranking woman in the history of U.S. government. She was not in the line of succession to the presidency, however, because she was a native of Prague, in what is now the Czech Republic,” CBC reported.

“The glass ceiling that she broke was universally admired, even by her political detractors,” the report added.

Albright’s death marks the end of an important figure in American history who has been part of some of our nation’s biggest events. She admirably served through key times in the nation’s life and will be greatly missed by many who treasured her work and her life.
