Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has received an endorsement from another prominent champion of women's rights: Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg.
In an interview with Bloomberg Television Thursday, Sandberg threw her support behind Clinton for president.
“I think politicians are the people that endorse, but I am very supportive of Hillary Clinton. I've said before, I'd like to see her as president. And I'd like to see more women presidents all over the world," Sandberg said.
Last year, Sandberg told HuffPost Live that she supported a Clinton 2016 presidential bid.
"I'd love to see Hillary Clinton run for president. I'd love to see Hillary Clinton be president," she said. "I think she is an outstanding leader, both as a woman and as a leader."
Sandberg has heavily promoted gender equality in the workplace and the importance of female leadership and empowerment. Similarly, Clinton has long championed women's rights. Sandberg's admiration of Clinton may be mutual: Clinton has frequently referenced Sandberg's bestselling book Lean In when discussing women's issues.
When Clinton ran for president in 2008, Sandberg gave the maximum $4,600 to her campaign.
