PHILADELPHIA -- U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar portrayed Hillary Clinton as a leader in the fight against international human trafficking Tuesday night during an address to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

The Minnesota Democrat credited the former secretary of state with adding the United States to the list of countries fighting sex slavery and helping pass Klobuchar’s domestic law that makes sure children who forced into sex slavery are treated as victims, not as criminals.

“She sees a world where girls are not captured and sold but are fearless and bold,” Klobuchar said, “where they lead and not follow and where when someone tells a young woman, ‘You fight like a girl,’ her answer is, ‘Yes, I do, and I’m proud to be that girl.’”

Klobuchar was among a group of speakers who praised Clinton’s diplomatic achievements in the Obama administration.

“Elevating women across the world so they are treated with dignity and respect, that’s what Hillary Clinton will do,” Klobuchar said.
