After revealing earlier this month she would once again start speaking out on public issues, Hillary Clinton gave one of her first public speeches since losing her bid for the presidency.

Appearing before the Professional Businesswomen of California, Clinton took to task GOP leaders on health care and women’s rights.

Clinton revealed to the audience how appalled she was at seeing the photo of an all-male group of Republican lawmakers negotiating women’s health care coverage.

She also admonished the lack of women in top jobs, calling it the “lowest in a generation”.

Clinton seemed to remove herself from the limelight following her loss to Donald Trump, but revealed during her speech, “Obviously the outcome of the election wasn’t the one I hoped for, worked for, but I will never stop speaking out for common-sense benefits that will allow moms and dads to stay on the job.”

Earlier this month at a Girls Inc. appearance in New York Clinton reflected on her presidential loss saying, “I have had my ups and downs. In the last months I have done my share of sleeping, a little soul-searching and reflecting, long walks in the wood, and in those moments I am thankful for my own village, my community and family and friends who have supported and encouraged me…they inspire me every day.”
